Join the National Inventors Hall of Fame® in an exploration of invention education – a pedagogy that invites students to discover or “invent” solutions to real-world problems.

Attendees will meet practitioners of this learning style from across the country, including Hall of Fame Inductee Jacqueline Quinn, a NASA environmental engineer who co-invented a revolutionary and environmentally safe clean-up technology called emulsified zero-valent iron (EZVI).

Highlights Include:

  • Actionable strategies you can use to achieve greater student outcomes
  • How to engage students and teachers through authentic invention education
  • How invention education develops key life skills such as creativity, confidence and problem solving
  • Insights into why invention education is an effective solution for school districts with unique challenges and student populations
  • A behind-the-scenes look into how the National Inventors Hall of Fame develops its engaging hands-on programming, and fulfills its mission to advance the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship nationwide
