Calling all curious, creative young inventors in grades K-8! The Lemelson-MIT Program is hosting an Invention Convention in Cambridge, MA. An Invention Convention is like a science fair, but focuses on giving children the opportunity to think creatively to solve real-world problems. Students will develop a model or prototype of their solution – an invention – to share at the convention. The process leading up to the Invention Convention should be fun and self-directed with some support from caring adults! Once signed up, participants will receive an invention packet and log book to help them along the way. Not only is the Invention Convention educational and fun, it's also free to participate!
