Event Details

Ever make something that no one else has? Have a great idea that might save the world or at least 5mins from homework time? In our visit to Inventionaland, you can see the creative officespace where people design and build prototypes of inventions.  Come see some inventions, visit some creative offices, watch a video about how an inventor's idea reaches the store shelves, brainstorm some invention ideas, and talk to some female STEM mentors from different fields. 

For over 20 years, Davison has helped everyday people prepare and present their ideas to corporations, manufacturers, and retailers forpossible licensing. Their exclusive idea to product method is responsible for more products in the stores than anyone else in this industry. Founder George Davison has spent his entire career creating our method that helps inventors and idea people chase their dreams at an affordable price. Davison will build your product idea into a working prototype or product sample that we can then present to a corporation.
 
Mentor Jennifer Schaupp coordinates the tour schedule and then give the tours to schools, community groups, and paid inventors/clients.  She is also a writer of invention/product summaries for the inventors/clients and prospective corporations as a well as the writer of a film about the history of the company to be shown during tours.
