Los Beneficios de Inventar

Many CIC inventors participate in the program in their schools or outside of school programs. If your school or program does not participate, tell your teachers and Principal to check us out. Ask them to contact us for help with implementing the program.

If you cannot participate with your school/program, contact us to register for our Independent Inventor Program.

In addition, we have many homeschooled inventors in our program. Contact us if you are homeschooled and would like to invent with us.

¿Por qué debería ser un inventor?

Los Beneficios de Inventar

  • It’s your project. You guide your process and learning. You can invent something you always dreamed of making a reality.
  • Aprenderás cómo presentar un producto y mejorar tus habilidades para hablar.
  • Hacer una marca en el mundo y ser altruista. La mayoría de los inventos que vemos están hechos para facilitar las cosas o ayudar a la gente.
  • You can be creative! Invention is not only for scientists. We have seen music inventions, inventions for sports, apps, kitchen products, and much more. The program celebrates all types of inventions!
  • This is your chance to show the world what you can do. You will gain valuable skills and opportunities through CIC. Many inventors meet mentors through their process. Many inventors appear on local and national media!
  • You do not have to be an A plus student to be the best inventor. Inventors think outside of the box to solve problems for the ones they love or their communities. That requires a type of thinking they might not be measured in your school tests. Even the best inventors fail and then overcome their challenges. Invention is a safe place to fail and then overcome!

Las invenciones siempre comienzan con un problema que debe resolverse y, a veces, no es fácil encontrar una solución. Sin embargo, una vez que lo haces, los resultados pueden ser super gratificantes. Nuestros inventores se han convertido en científicos y lanzan sus propias compañías, ¡pero la parte más gratificante sigue siendo el proceso de inventar!

How Do I Create an Invention?

If you are inventing outside of a school or program, try to find a mentor to help you through your process. If you cannot find one, no worries, you can do this on your own. Invention is collaborative so although you will invent independently, you are never alone. You need to speak with many people along your journey.

To begin your invention journey, read the Invention Log. This diary will take you through the steps of the invention process. Answer the questions along the way.

Understand the rules of the program, and what is needed in order to present at one of our events. Understand the rubric, and what the judges will be evaluating you on!

How Do I Create an Invention?

¡Recuerda que la invención debe ser divertida! ¡Si pones el esfuerzo y la creatividad, podrías ver tu invención ir a las finales del estado y de la nación, ganando grandes premios en el camino!

Be sure to say thank you and give credit to all the people who helped you in the invention process (parents, teachers, your fellow students, and more!)
