Only register for this session if you have been accepted to be a Project Invent mentor through the application on projectinvent.org. Project Invent empowers all students to invent. That’s because when students invent, they become innovative, resilient, and prepared to tackle any challenge that comes their way. Join Project Invent to learn how to empower students to solve real problems in their community with technology. We teach design thinking, engineering, and entrepreneurship as tools to solve real-world problems. Students in our program have developed everything from a smart wallet that helps the blind detect bill denominations to a steering wheel attachment that prevents drowsy driving. We fully embrace the learn-by-doing model, so we will prepare you for mentoring invention...by having you invent! Participants will go from passion to product to pitch in 4 days to experience all of the roadblocks and challenges that students will experience throughout the year. We will show you how to use Arduino as a platform for building impactful inventions, how to generate hundreds of creative ideas, how to identify community partners, and more. You will leave this professional development with a strong set of tools for creating real-world context around making and programming
