The Invention Experience, or InventionX, is an innovative problem-solving program challenging middle and high school students to invent solutions to real-world challenges. Invention education highlights real-world applications of knowledge, increases student motivation, strengthens critical thinking skills, and creates long-term engagement in STEM careers.

InventionX succeeds through three major components:
Educator Training Workshops – instructors are trained on how to use the Invention Process with their students.
Student Projects – students are guided through the 5-step Invention Process with their instructors.
Invention Challenges – students compete for awards and recognition for their inventions.

The 5-Stage Invention Process:

  1. Inspiration
  2. Invention
  3. Selection
  4. Prototype
  5. Pitch

During the full-day InventionX Educator Workshop, participants learn the 5-step InventionX framework to create hands-on, self-driven learning opportunities for their students, building upon the processes used by universities and startups to launch new products and technologies.
