Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams: High School Invention Grants
Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams is a national grants initiative that fosters inventiveness among high school students.
Composed of high school students, teachers, and mentors, InvenTeams collaboratively identify a problem that they want to solve; research the problem; and then develop a prototype invention as an in-class or extracurricular project.
InvenTeams are encouraged to work with community partners -- specifically, the potential beneficiaries of their invention. Grants of up to $10,000 support each team's efforts.
Inventions funded by the foundation have included watermelon ripeness evaluators, portable smoke detectors for the deaf, sidewalk heating systems, and robotic tennis ball retrievers.
Applications for the 2009 InvenTeams are available. The deadline for the initial application is April 25, 2008.
