2019 Michigan Invention Convention

Educator Judging 9:30am-12:30pm

The Michigan Invention Convention provides students in grades 3-12 an interactive and interdisciplinary opportunity to use the invention process to create and pitch an original product at a state-wide convention. Students will build their critical thinking and entrepreneurial skills and may have the opportunity to compete in the National Invention Convention Entrepreneurship Expo.

Educators will be given a chance to vote for their favorite student project and turn their ballot in at The Model I booth in the plaza.
