The Lemelson-MIT Program has invited 16 teams of high school inventors to its EurekaFest event, where students will have a chance to showcase their inventions. The program calls this initiative InvenTeams, and its goal to engage students through invention projects that focus on STEM-subjects – science, technology, engineering, and math. Noting a continuing gender gap in employment in STEM fields, the Lemelson-MIT Program added that it is awarding grants of up to $10,000 to three all-girl schools that were among the 16 invitees.
