Meet the Most Inventive Kids in Iowa

Invent Iowa, one of the premier programs of the Belin-Blank Center at the University of Iowa, serves the needs of talented young inventors. The Invent Iowa Program encourages students to think creatively and solve problems through the invention process. Now in its 27th year, the program has celebrated the work of thousands of students in grades K-12. These novice inventors, whose inventions range from solar stock tank heater and pop can counter to devices that make life easier for those with disabilities, continue to amaze and inspire.

Twenty-four students from across Iowa will be competing for top honors at the State Invent Iowa Meritorious Scholarship Competition to be held on Saturday, April 19, from 12:30-4:20 at the Belin-Blank Center at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.  Students will present their inventions to a panel of judges, who will then interview each student and ultimately award six $500.00 College of Engineering Scholarships to the University of Iowa or Iowa State University.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks – we’ll be featuring an invention every day until the State Invent Iowa Meritorious Scholarship Competition!
