Massachusetts Invention Convention Information Session
The Massachusetts Invention Convention is a K-12 invention education program. The program is designed to develop, encourage, and enhance creative problem-solving and critical thinking skills through invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Invention provides students with a unique means to develop new skill sets and creatively apply them in real-life settings while nurturing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Massachusetts Invention Convention, powered by the Lemelson-MIT Program, is easy to implement, flexible enough to meet diverse student needs, adaptable to a broad range of disciplines, and accessible to virtually any young learner. It is a STEMIE (STEM + Invention + Entrepreneurship) experience that prepares students for the needs of the 21st-century. The MA Invention Convention program will culminate in a state finals event that will provide young inventors the opportunity to present their prototypes to their peers and adult judges.
Massachusetts Invention Convention offers:
- Professional Development
- Hands-on, real-world, project-based learning activities.
- Free curriculum
- Exciting events at school, state and national levels.
