Help your students invent the future

KCIC is built upon STEMIE experiential learning that builds confidence, teaches public speaking, and promotes critical thinking and problem-solving skills. By following the 7-step invention process, our young inventors explore ideas based on their own life experiences and develop real inventions and innovations. Participating students become part of a global ecosystem that allows them the opportunity to gain new skills, friendships, and a new perspective about the world around them. Plus, they have the chance to win prizes, scholarships, and the opportunity to compete in the national and global competitions!

By becoming a KCIC educator, you gain access to a free, interdisciplinary curriculum aligned with national standards to activate invention education in your classroom or after-school program. This ready-to-use curriculum includes lesson plans and activities designed to foster your students’ innate desires to identify problems and create meaningful solutions.
