Congratulations to the 2022-2023 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams!
INTEGRATING STEM THROUGH INVENTING
We're proud to announce the ten new Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams® that have been selected for the 2022-2023 school year. InvenTeams are groups of high school students, educators and mentors that invent technological solutions to real-world problems of their own choosing. The InvenTeam initiative offers an unparalleled opportunity for high school students to cultivate their creativity and experience invention. Read the press release here.
InvenTeam students rely on inquiry and hands-on problem solving as they integrate lessons from science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to develop invention prototypes. Interactive, self-directed learning coupled with STEM curricula are essential for experiencing invention.
Students learn to work in teams, while collaborating with intended users of their inventions. They partner with organizations in their communities to enrich their experiences. Most of all, students learn to move forward through challenges and celebrate "Eureka!" moments.
After the InvenTeam experience, inventive cultures often continue to prosper at schools through further development of InvenTeam prototypes or the pursuit of new invention projects. To date, 14 InvenTeams have patents for their InvenTeam projects, although, patents are not a requirement.
