FabLearn webinar with guest Tony Perry of the Lehmlson-MIT Invention Education program

We are pleased to share a recent webinar with guest Tony Perry, Invention Education Coordinator at the Lemelson-MIT Program that celebrates outstanding inventors and inspires young people to pursue creative lives and careers through invention.

Tony shared the goals of the program and current opportunities for young people in their Invention contests and programs. Justin Brown, one of the FabLearn Fellows, discussed how the InventTeams program works in his high school in Hawaii. It was an interesting conversation, as we discussed the similarities between “maker” and invention programs in schools, how to gain support from students, parents, teachers, and administration, fundraising, and encouraging students to believe that they can invent things.
