The Lemelson-MIT Program and Charles R. Drew Senior Academy are hosting a virtual Mid-Grant Technical Review (MGTR) event to showcase the school’s InvenTeam which is one of this year’s 13 InvenTeam grant recipients. The MGTR is a community event that provides students an opportunity to present the technicalities of their invention and receive feedback from community members with technical and subject matter expertise. The students apply what they learn to continue building their invention in anticipation of our annual EurekaFest event in June when they showcase their final working prototype to the MIT community. These community events have been held in-person at the schools, but due to COVID-19 will be held entirely online.
Join us for the MGTR event that supports local high school inventors and cultivates a culture of invention in the community.
