The Lemelson-MIT program announced its 2018-2019 InvenTeams, which will spend the next year developing invention projects that will be showcased at the annual EurekaFest at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in June 2019.
Now in its fifteenth year, InvenTeams inspires youth to invent technological solutions to real-world problems of their own choosing.
The 15 teams, comprised of students, teachers, and community mentors, will each receive up to $10,000 in grant funding to apply their learnings and experiences to build their inventions.
This year’s InvenTeam projects include a danger alert system for schools, personal safety monitor to prevent injuries and fatalities for workers and rescuers in confined spaces, and a vital sign monitoring system for firefighters to prevent the risk of overexertion during fire rescues.
