Young Inventors Program

The Academy of Applied Science’s Young Inventors’ Program is a K-12 Project-based learning program that provides a hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) educational enrichment opportunity to budding youth inventors. The Young Inventors’ Program delivers YIP Kits, invention kits for classrooms, to help schools introduce a fun invention curriculum to their learners in the form of a teachable unit, or via a club or afterschool program that culminates in a school Invention Convention event. The flexible program can be started anytime October-February with a school’s winning inventors being identified by March in order to qualify for the Academy’s Regional Invention Convention Competition with potential to go to the Nationals at the U.S. Patent Office in Washington, D.C. The Academy of Applied Science has a partnership called Invention New England that offers an online training course for teachers for professional development or graduate credit to teachers in NH, MA, ME and Vermont.
