H/Invention Project

Invention Project

A virtual program created by the National Inventors Hall of Fame

Create cool devices (and learn about intellectual property) with the Invention Project! 

Professional Science Center educators will guide students through their projects and add in some camaraderie, games, and additional creativity skill-building.

What is the Invention Project?

For students in grades 5-9

Developed for remote learning by the National Inventors Hall of Fame (affiliated with the United States Patent and Trademark Office), the Invention Project program gives kids deluxe build materials and projects that develop their creativity and prompt problem-solving.

The Invention Project program is virtual only.  For an additional $20, you can sign your inventor up for an in-person session of Soldering School at the Science Center. This add-on includes a cool circuit board build that is theirs to keep.

Soldering School is available only to students enrolled in the Invention Project program.
