Got Inventions?

Students who are inventing on their own may participate in the YIP’s Independent Students’ Invention Fair. Showcase your invention & compete to advance to regional and national events.

Northern New England Invention Convention

Each year, the Young Inventors’ Program students, families, and educators come together for our regional invention convention to celebrate (and compete).

Great Ideas Start Here

Want to invent? Our resources for young inventors will help you develop your great idea into a working prototype. You can also learn about other inventors and how to participate in our programs.

Ignite the Spark of Genius

Help young inventors turn their ideas into real-world solutions. Our resources provide detailed activities to weave science, technology, and engineering into problem solving and invention building.


Championing innovation, stimulating youth science, and advancing education in science, mathematics, engineering, technology and invention are never-ending quests. The Academy needs your help. We welcome your contributions, support, and/or personal volunteerism.
