Spring 2020 Volunteers: Northern New England Invention Convention

Help us host the Northern New England Invention Convention on March 28, 2020 at Southern New Hampshire University in Hooksett, NH. RSVP here.

Judging volunteers: 8 am to 1 pm

Judges meet our young inventors, talk about projects, and evaluate their development process, prototypes, and presentations. Judges do not need experience with K-12 education, we will provide orientation and training about how to judge projects and encourage students to follow their creativity. We find that judges who have experience with STEM disciplines, product development, manufacturing, entrepreneurship, and education are more successful in these roles.

Event volunteers: morning (7:30 to 11:30 am) or afternoon (11:30 am to 3:30 pm)

Event volunteers support the Invention Convention in a variety of capacities including registration, wayfinding on campus, facilitate judging, and help the awards ceremony run smoothly. When you RSVP, please select your preferred shift.
