Hear from student inventors about their experiences and learn from K-12 teachers about how invention education enhances learning, opens minds and possibilities, and prepares students for the jobs of the future.

A prosthetic arm, a smart cup for seniors with dysphagia, and adaptive nail clippers for people managing diabetes…these were just some of the products created by our panel of student inventors to solve problems in their communities.
