EurekaFest: Where High School Teams Display World-Class Inventions

The 2022-23 InvenTeams are hard at work developing technological solutions to the problems they've identified. On June 14, 2023, at EurekaFest on the MIT campus, you'll be able to see their presentations and meet them in person at the showcase. To learn more about these InvenTeams, click here

EurekaFest is an event that empowers student inventors, honors role models, and encourages creativity and problem solving. To get a taste of the event, take a look at last year's participants, the 2022 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams. These high school students from across the country, who received an InvenTeam grant to build a working prototype to solve a real-world problem in their community, were a part of EurekaFest 2022.
