Due to the uncertainties and health concerns of COVID-19, the planned activities in Washington, D.C. have been canceled. Stay tuned for more details on alternative plans and feel free to contact info-lemelson@mit.edu with any questions.

2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Lemelson-MIT Program and to celebrate we will be hosting a very special EurekaFest in Washington, D.C. this June! Join us to see working prototypes developed by high school and college students who are solving real-world problems through invention!

High school students from across the country who participated in the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams grant initiative will discuss how they moved through challenges and built inventions during the 2019-2020 school year. The top collegiate inventors who won the coveted 2020 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize will also attend EurekaFest. Both the Student Prize winners and the InvenTeams will explain and display their inventions at an Invention Showcase.

The Invention Showcase is free and open to the public, who are encouraged to attend:
