The Lemelson–MIT Program launched the Junior Varsity InvenTeam initiative, a program designed to provide ninth and tenth grade students with access to hands-on STEM enrichment opportunities. The initiative begins with pilots in Massachusetts and Texas, with plans to extend to California and the Pacific Northwest in 2015. JV InvenTeams practice invention-based design activities and apply their learned skills to create projects, including shoe soles and wearable electronics. Students will also learn to present projects at regional events alongside other JV InvenTeams and their varsity counterparts, Lemelson- MIT InvenTeams.
