Inventing Their Future
The Invention Convention program is designed to activate a FREE project-based learning curriculum through school, state and national showcase events. Students learn:
- To think critically by identifying problems in their world.
- The impact of inventions in their lives.
- To apply STEM, invention and entrepreneurial skills building real-world solutions.
Why is this important? Aligned with national standards, our K-12 invention education program can be used within any discipline by tapping into students’ innate desires and abilities to identify problems and create meaningful solutions.
How do I get started? Bring Invention Convention into your classroom and activate students’ creative and critical-thinking ability. Just register for access to our FREE Invention Curriculum and use this flexible, project-based learning tool to help enhance student understanding of invention and its context in the real world.
What’s in it for my students? They become part of a global ecosystem which allows them the opportunity to gain new skills, friendships, recognition and perspectives.
Provided by the STEMIE Coalition, the National Invention Convention Curriculum is open access, so EVERY student K-12 may have access to it. “Open Access” means that while STEMIE does not charge for the curriculum, we do vet all the curriculum and author new pieces with curriculum experts regularly to ensure the content is aligned with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.
It is The STEMIE Coalition’s belief that while not all Inventors are Entrepreneurs and not all Entrepreneurs are Inventors, these two pillars of Innovation (Inventing + Entrepreneurship) are closely aligned and are necessary skills sets in which all students should be immersed in order to create a more innovative, empathetic, and productive workforce of tomorrow.
