The InventEd Convening brings together a nationwide community of practice committed to creating opportunities for all youth to have opportunities to develop the inventive mindset, skills and knowledge they need to invent and thrive in a changing world.
We started with our first meeting in 2017 with a small group of 50 individuals representing 15+ organizations. Today, there is a growing number of individuals and organizations expanding access to invention education. As a community we have built a national network, InventEd, where over 800 individuals across more than 100 organizations, are learning about this growing field of practice, and working year-round to bring invention education experiences to more students. This convening is an unique opportunity for program providers, teachers, informal educators, researchers, government and corporate executives and others to share progress in their work, and collaborate across industries and disciplines to build the field.
