turning passion into action



Our theme this year is Turning Passion into Action. In the time since the InventEd community last came together, we have made great strides in expanding the reach and impact of invention education. This convening is an opportunity to harness that momentum, share our learnings, and transform great insights into actionable steps to further grow invention education and our community of practice. Join us for InventEd 2024!

March 26

Join us before the main sessions begin to see invention education in action within DC area programs and connect with fellow participants at our evening reception.

March 27

Our first full day of talks and workshops will ground and energize your invention education practice. The afternoon session will take us into DC for a special event.

March 28

Continue to network and be inspired on this last day of the Convening. Dive into community-led sessions and make plans to take action back in your classrooms, programs, and organizations. 

Request for Proposals is OPEN!
