We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe, and are connected with each other to form one whole community.

Invention Convention 2010 Introduction


The Invention Convention is an event that gives students an opportunity to use important science skills independently as they invent a new product or process. It can be a classroom, school, or district wide science event.


This science event is designed to encourage students to apply basic science skills in a creative and productive manner. Participants are encouraged to identify a need or to solve a problem by following the same steps and patent application procedures that an inventor would follow in patenting an invention.


Once a need or a problem has been identified, students are directed to use problem-solving and creative-thinking skills to invent a product or process that would fill the need or overcome the problem. The suggested procedure for the Invention Convention involves five basic steps.
