Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) School of Engineering and The Lemelson Foundation
Grants of up to $10,000 to USA and territories STEM educators affiliated with high schools and nonprofit educational organizations to lead high school student teams in a hands-on STEM challenge. Applicants must submit an initial application prior to submitting a final application.
The Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam® initiative offers an unparalleled opportunity for high school students to cultivate their creativity and experience invention.
InvenTeam students rely on inquiry and hands-on problem solving as they integrate lessons from science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to develop invention prototypes. InvenTeam projects span many fields like assistive devices, environmental technologies, consumer goods, and wearable technology. Inventors are encouraged to identify important problems in their own communities. Local problems tend to highly motivate youth as they create technological solutions to improve the lives of others.
Funds may be allocated for research, materials, and learning experiences related to the project. The grant may be used to purchase supplies necessary for the discovery process and expenses related to product development and team-building efforts (including snacks, meals, and team polo shirts). Funds may be used for an unrestricted teacher fellowship of $3,000 if the project is conducted as an extracurricular activity or club. The Program will cover room and board for eight team members (six students and two chaperones) for EurekaFest attendance.
