Help your students invent the future
As an educator, you are preparing your students for their futures as working adults in a variety of fields, as critical thinkers, and as innovators.
The Kansas City Invention Convention is aligned with national standards and designed to activate a FREE, project-based learning curriculum to assist you as a teacher both in the classroom and virtually. With your guidance and by tapping into their innate desires and abilities to identify problems and create meaningful solutions, student participants in grades 4-12 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.
In addition to the life-changing experiences students will get through the Kansas City Invention Convention, participants become part of a global ecosystem that allows them the opportunity to gain new skills, friendships, recognition, and perspectives. Plus, they can win prizes and awards for their entries. A select few students will also have the opportunity to attend the National Invention Competition at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation! (The 2021 national competition will be virtual)
