Inventors’ Journals

Inventors’ Journals provide space for students to journal, brainstorm, and document their invention journey. For 2019-2020, journals for grade levels K-3 and 4-8 include lesson worksheets. You may choose to run your YIP program without journals; however students competing in the Northern New England Invention Convention and Invention Convention U.S. Nationals are required to present an invention journal or notebook that documents their process.
