Hello young inventors! We are glad you are here.
You may not think you are an inventor, but we are here to change your mind — because anybody, any age, can be an inventor!
Our Invention Convention Program is designed to provide you with the tools and guidance you need to look around you, find problems that impact your world and to come up with ideas (inventions) that make it better. And then to learn how to make your ideas into real products and services that people can use (entrepreneurship).
Invention Conventions are run through schools, after school programs, clubs and other student organizations. There are state and local Invention Convention programs springing up all over the world!
Don’t have a program in your school or district? Through a program called the Independent Inventors program, you can still access the Invention Convention and work on your own inventions: Link me to the Independent Inventor Program.
UPDATE: COVID-19 FORMAT CHANGE – ONLINE VIDEO PITCH SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2020 OHIO INVENTION CONVENTION
If your students do not participate and/or your school/district was unable to finish their 2019-2020 program you can register to be in our Independent Inventor Program to submit a pitch video for the 2020 Ohio Invention Convention.
The Invention League team understands that many schools and districts were unable to complete the Invention Convention program before Governor Dewine’s directive, closing Ohio schools.
We are inviting you to register or continue your invention process with us through the Independent Inventor Program. All student inventors are welcome to register by contacting Amy Calhoun and the Invention League team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
