Project Invent is a national nonprofit organization that empowers high school students to design and invent technologies for social good. By developing design thinking, engineering, and entrepreneurship skills throughout the school year, Project Invent students create impactful inventions like a safety device for individuals with communication disorders, or a wearable anti-veering belt for the blind. Project Invent students are inspired and supported by educators, who join Project Invent for a year-long fellowship experience. Project Invent fellows attend a week-long summer training in design thinking and invention, receive support throughout the year from expert advisors, and develop entrepreneurship skills as they prepare students to pitch to Silicon Valley investors. Since 2018, Project Invent has worked with over 50 schools across the country, and applications to join their 2021-2022 fellowship are open now! If you are ready to inspire students through the invention process, submit your application by May 21st! No engineering experience is required--some of our best fellows are art teachers! Note: the Project Invent program is free for educators in Title I schools, and low cost for all other educators.
