National Competition

YIP Affiliation with Invention Convention Worldwide

The Academy of Applied Science is a proud partner in the worldwide movement to inspire youth innovation. In 2015 through our Young Inventors’ Program®, we were an early collaborator to develop a consortium of invention programs to work together and formalize a national invention convention. This affiliation is now Invention Convention Worldwide in partnership with the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.

The Northern New England Invention Convention is a qualifying competition for students to advance to the national and international competitions. Selected winners at our regional event will be invited to participate in Invention Convention U.S. and Invention Convention Worldwide per rules set-forth by Invention Convention Worldwide and The Henry Ford.
