2019 Maine Invention Convention
The Maine Invention Convention is a statewide competition that promotes innovative problem solving and invention by Maine middle school students. Throughout the school year, students work with their peers and teachers to identify and solve problems. After competing against their peers at the school level, top students are invited to attend the state convention at the Maine Science Festival, where students from each participating school compete for the top invention awards!
