Event Details

Calling all curious and creative young inventors in grades K-8!  The Lemelson-MIT Program is hosting the first ever Invention Convention in Cambridge, MA.  An Invention Convention is like a science fair, but focuses on giving children the opportunityt to think creatively to create solutions to real-world problems.  Students will develop a model or prototype of their solution - their 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 explaining the invention process, and a log book to help them along the way.  

Not only is the Invention Convention education and fun, it's also free to participate! 

For legal reasons, students may not register themselves -- all registrations must be completed by an adult.  Please choose the number of children that you are registering, add each of their names as the Invention Convention Attendee, the email will be for the parent/guardian, and the parent/guardian name and phone number will be entered below.

The Invention Convention in Cambridge is being offered by the Lemelson-MIT Program, which is part of the School of Engineering at MIT, an institution with an ongoing commitment to creating meaningful opportunities for K-12 STEM education.
