Celebrating 30 Years of Inspiring Learners to INVENT to Solve Tomorrow's Challenges

The Young Inventors' Program (YIP) project-based learning encourages critical thinking, and introduces basic principles of design thinking through out-of-the-box problem solving, leading youth in the creation of their own invention. Since 1986, YIP's hands-on approach has brought STEM into the K-8th grade curriculum for more than 6,000 students each year. Participating teachers are given a YIP kit, which is a box containing all of the materials and resources needed to implement the program. YIP is unique in that students present and market their idea at INVENTION CONVENTION where STEM industry representatives and community members serve as role models, resources, and judges for the school and regional competitions.


Supporting Hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math (STEAM) Integration in the Classroom

YIP inspires students to look at their world differently through participation in either the INVENTION CONVENTION or a Rube Goldberg® Competition.
