Project Invent

Featured Projects

High school students can develop innovative solutions that make the world a better place. All of our student teams take a human-centered approach to develop physical technology products that solve a need in their communities. Students work directly with people in their neighborhoods who face unique challenges, and learn how to invent solutions that create a better, safer, more equitable world. Here are some projects from across the years.
