School Vacation Program for Young Inventors
The Lemelson-MIT Program is hosting a week-long invention program on the MIT campus for students during school vacation week. Students will develop their skills in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through fun, invention-based design activities and challenges.
Using the JV InvenTeams Chill Out activity guide, students will experience the inventive mindset as they build a lunch box and learn about and experiment with creative applications of heat and heat transfer, and explore topics such as:
Convection, conduction,and radiation
Heat and energy
Electricity and circuits
Peltier devices, which can be used for both heating and cooling
