The Lemelson–MIT Program announced today the expansion of the Junior Varsity (JV) InvenTeam™ initiative, adding California to its geographic line up of student teams in Massachusetts, Oregon and Texas. The initiative launched in 2014 and equips educators with invention-based activity guides, materials and tools to enhance science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education through hands-on skill building. JV InvenTeam activity guides are available for any educator to download here

Teams of students in grades 7-10 will have the opportunity to create useful and unique invention projects and explore STEM opportunities on a college campus. Educators are offered support from local partner organizations, including 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Boys & Girls Clubs and museums. 

The initiative, supported by The Lemelson Foundation, builds upon InvenTeams™, the Lemelson-MIT Program’s national grants initiative engaging high school students in invention education activities. Visit http://lemelson.mit.edu/get-involved for more information.
