National Youth Invention and Entrepreneurship Summit

2018 Fall Affiliate Summit

The National Youth Invention and Entrepreneurship Program Organizers Summit – September 7-9, 2018

The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Dearborn, Michigan

The annual National Youth Invention and Entrepreneurship Program Organizers Summit brings together youth invention, innovation and entrepreneurship affiliate and partner program organizers and VIPs. The goal is to build bridges between our programs, share best practices, brainstorm national issues, and otherwise support each other in our efforts to formalize invention and entrepreneurship education in the U.S. K-12 landscape. In particular, the goals of the Summit are:

  • To expand The STEMIE Coalition’s knowledge of its present affiliate base’s needs in order to grow current invention education programs on a curve to our 10-million student goal
  • To share best practices and programmatic elements among current and potential affiliates in their invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship efforts
  • To build strong pathways to existing science, engineering design, robotic, maker, coding, creative, and entrepreneurship movements
  • To progress the development of the Invention Education Movement and prepare for its global launch
  • To provide guidance to emerging invention and entrepreneurship organizations and help to accelerate their launches
  • To map a collective plan for interlinking STEM+Invention+Entrepreneurship efforts
  • To boost our creativity and energy by working together IN PERSON!

2017 Summit: September 14-17 at The Henry Ford

The 2017 Summit, sponsored by The Lemelson Foundation, took place at The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan.  Summit participants had a great time visiting the museum, riding in Ford’s Model T cars in Greenfield Village, and touring Ford Rouge Factory.  A lot of work was done too, of course!
