2 Invention Challenges

If you have been working on Design Thinking with your students, you might want to enter one of two invention challenges that open to children at the moment:

The 2016 Annual Invent It Challenge, sponsored by Spark!Lab, invites participants from 5-21 years of age to submit an idea for a solution to a real-world health problem.  The deadline for submissions is 3/18/16.  Click on the above link for more details.

Imagination Foundation (the wonderful organization behind Global Cardboard Challenge and many other great activities for kids) has teamed up with AT&T to offer the Inventor’s Challenge.  According to their site, “we invite kids of all ages around the United States to invent a solution to a challenge faced by their school or community.” (I’m not certain if they literally mean all ages, as I couldn’t find actual age restrictions on their site.)  Submissions are due by 3/11/16.  Visit the site for more information and register to receive a free download of the “Playbook” with ideas and suggestions for participation.
