Join the 2017 Thomas Edison Invention Challenge

All you K-12 inventors out there … it’s time again for the Thomas Edison Invention Challenge, the 2017 cycle. Check it out here:

Join the 2017 Thomas Edison Invention Challenge

The Challenge started in 2010 to celebrate the spirit of invention, and to spur young folks to strive to become the next Thomas Edison! When Edison created his invention factory concept [later to become corporate R&D labs], he used a team-based, integrated or interdisciplinary, head and hands, approach to new product development— exactly what we recognize today as STEM. We can think of Edison as the original “STEM-meister”.

This cycle will challenge inventors to develop things that improve the qualitative life of people-the betterment of society in representative categories:

  • Alternate energy technology applications
  • Assisting the handicapped
  • Medically relevant products
  • Educational games
  • Intel Edison smart chips and coding for robotic/prosthetic applications

  • Winners receive 3D Printers and other cool prizes!
  • Virtual Competition- All submissions must be uploaded through a shared google drive folder. We do not accept any other type of submissions outside of Google drive.
  • K-12 Students are eligible to participate
  • $250 Teacher Stipend to all schools who complete the competition (1 per school)

Last year’s Challenge [2016] involved 13 States, 50+ schools, 2 countries, & well over 100 teams. Interested?

Don’t let the invention parade pass you by!
