Yale Clubs & The Invention Convention

In conjunction with the Yale Day of Service, The Henry Ford’s Invention Convention Worldwide and local Yale Clubs are working together to provide judges and sponsors for 2020 invention convention competitions throughout the United States.

About Invention Convention

The Invention Convention is a program for students from pre-kindergarten through high school that teaches young people how to look at the world around them to find problems to solve, and how to use the engineering design process to prototype and finalize solutions. Students showcase their projects at “Invention Conventions,” a hierarchical series of events that are initially hosted by local schools and then progress through regional, state, national, and global final competitions.

Each year, the members of the Invention Convention Coalition train more than 120,000 young men and women around the world how to be inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators.

The Invention Convention has its roots in Connecticut, where it was established in 1983. Over the last two years, the Yale Club of Hartford has become increasingly more involved, first by providing judges, and in 2019 by becoming a corporate sponsor of the Connecticut state finals held at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Connecticut.

More details on how the Invention Convention program has worked in the last few years with the Yale Club of Hartford are available here.
