Across the country this spring, tens of thousands of students participated in local invention conventions. Whether virtual, hybrid or in person, these competitions came with months of preparation by students and their families, not to mention because of the tremendous efforts of educators and school administrators.
“Despite the enormous challenges this school year, many teachers and schools introduced the invention education curriculum in their classrooms for this first time,” said Emily Shannon from Invention Convention Worldwide. “Educators across the country were role models of innovation, ingenuity and the inventive spirit.”
One such educator is Bri Livingood, Principal at New Covenant School in Arlington, MA. “Invention convention has become an awesome, unifying experience for our students and the community,” she said about their first-ever invention convention held in March. “Our kids are truly the inspiration, providing overloaded teachers the encouragement we need to move forward.”
