Welcome to the Massachusetts Invention Convention!!
The Massachusetts Invention Convention is being held virtually this year.
Teacher and Judge Registrations are now open.
Student Registration for our 2021 Convention is now open!
The Massachusetts Invention Convention event is an annual celebration of K-12 inventors and entrepreneurs from across Massachusetts. The event provides a vehicle for youth inventors and entrepreneurs from grades K-12 to display their critical thinking skills through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurial activities.
Each year, student “winners” from classroom competitions around Massachusetts are invited to attend the state Massachusetts Invention Convention.
In 2021, in response to the ongoing pandemic, the Massachusetts Invention Convention is being held virtually. Students must register on this site in order to participate.
As part of the registration system, each inventor / team must submit a 4-6 minute video (3-6 minutes for K-2nd) created according to guidelines outlined in Creating Your Video. The video will be reviewed by the judges and MUST be submitted by March 29, 2021.
Judges will review and score assigned videos between starting April 3, 2021. There will be a virtual Awards Ceremony on April 24, 2021 and final results will be posted on our website www.massinventionconvention.org the following week.
IF YOU ARE AN INDEPENDENT INVENTOR (YOU ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH A REGISTERED SCHOOL FOR THE 2021 MASSACHUSETTS INVENTION CONVENTION) WE ARE PROVIDING A LOCAL INVENTION CONVENTION FOR YOU THROUGH THE CAMBRIDGE SCIENCE FESTIVAL. PLEASE ANSWER "YES" FOR THAT QUESTION DURING THE REGISTRATION.
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME TO THE SITE FOR 2021, YOU NEED TO CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT:
Teachers: Teacher registration is open.
Students: Registration opens mid-February. Go to the top of the page, click on "Create Account" and choose "Student". You can download detailed instructions as a pdf here.
Judges: Judge registration is open. Go to the top of the page, click on "Create Account" and choose "Judge".
VERY IMPORTANT!!! If you have already registered this year as a teacher and you are serving as a judge, you need to make a small adjustment to register as a judge. When you enter your name and email, it must be different than your first registration. So if you registered as Judy Smith firstname.lastname@example.org – you could register with a different email account, or change your first name to Judith or even add a digit such as Judy1 Smith. The system goes into a loop if you try to register with the same name and email.
Volunteers: As our event will be virtual, we will not be needing your help this year. Thank you for thinking of us and we will see you in 2022!!
ONCE YOU CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT, YOU CAN COME BACK ANY TIME BY LOGGING IN AND CLICKING ON "MY PROFILE".
