2021 Independent Student Invention Fair Winners

The Young Inventors’ Program hosted our second annual Independent Students’ Invention Fair (ISIF)* on March 18th. We congratulate all of our independent student inventors for accepting our challenge to invent this year. With your innovative spirit, you dove right in to look at the world around you and then found creative solutions to real problems.

You are a part of a much larger movement of young people who have the talent, spirit and grit to change our world today and in the future. Kudos on your achievements. Invent On!

* ISIF was developed to meet the growing calls from our students who don’t have access to a local Young Inventors’ Program site. These students motivate themselves to solve problems and advance through the program. This Invention Fair gave them the opportunity to present their ideas and meet their peers who love to invent too. This year’s independent students joined YIP from New Hampshire, Florida, and Colorado.

Students who were recognized with awards will progress to the Northern New England Invention Convention. This competition will be held virtually during the month of April with a celebration event on May 2nd.
