Commitment to Action

Cultivating Inventive Skills and Knowledge Among Youth

Commitment by

The Lemelson Foundation, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

In 2013, The Lemelson-MIT Program and the Lemelson Foundation committed to launching the Junior Varsity InvenTeams initiative. This initiative builds upon the successful, national InvenTeams program for high school students and will bring invention education to at least 640 students and 160 educators in Massachusetts, Texas, California, Washington, and Oregon that are currently without significant hands-on STEM project experience. The students involved in this commitment will build knowledge and practice lateral thinking through the creation of useful and unique products using the skills they acquire through joining a JV InvenTeam, helping to develop the next wave of inventors and game-changing inventions that will drive the American economy and improve lives around the world.
