    Wow, that place looks like the Holy Grail to me.
    The prize should be enough to attract plenty of applicants.

    Good luck to all taking part. We can’t have enough fantastic ideas.

    My name is Ted Latham and I am a retired physics and technology teacher volunteering with the Metuchen NJ Library “Maker Space”. In regards to your Thomas Edison Pitch Competition, is this competition open to students that are participants (outside of their regular school programs) to be able to participate in your Thomas Edison Pitch Competition. FYI – I have recently retire from 17 years of service as a member of the Thomas Edison Memorial Tower and Museum at Menlo Park NJ. Thank you for your response
