Applications Invited for Lemelson-MIT Program InvenTeams Initiative
Deadline: May 7, 2004 (Initial application)

The Lemelson-MIT Program for Invention and Innovation (<a href="http://web.mit.edu/invent/">http://web.mit.edu/invent/</a>) created the InvenTeams program to foster inventiveness in high school students. InvenTeams are formed by high school students, their teachers, and industry mentors for the purpose of inventing something of value for their school or local communities.

The program provides grant support to high school-age invention teams across the United States for projects developed during the academic year. Teachers from public, private, charter, and vocational programs are eligible. Grants of up to $10,000 each are awarded annually in early fall.

Grants will be awarded to teams under the supervision of science, mathematics, or technology teacher-applicants who are expected to work collaboratively with their teams in the spirit of self-directed learning. Teams may be formed in class or as extracurricular activities at public, private, or charter high schools or vocational programs.

Complete information and application materials are available at the program’s Web site.
