White House Science Fair showcases Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams
Date:10/18/2010

Today, two Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams were among more than a dozen teams from around the country that presented their winning work at a White House Science Fair. The fair celebrates the winners of a broad range of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) competitions, including students from the Cesar Chavez High School InvenTeam in Laveen, Arizona and the Oak Ridge High School InvenTeam in Oak Ridge, Tennessee to showcase their inventions to President Obama. The timing of this prestigious honor coincides with the Lemelson-MIT Program's announcement of the 2010 2011 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams.

The White House Science Fair fulfills a commitment the President made at the launch of his Educate to Innovate campaign in November 2009 to inspire boys and girls to excel in math and science. As the President noted then, "If you win the NCAA championship, you come to the White House. Well, if you're a young person and you produce the best experiment or design, the best hardware or software, you ought to be recognized for that achievement, too."

InvenTeams are immersed in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM-focused, project-based learning in both classroom and real-world settings. Teams are encouraged to work with mentors and establish partner relationships with professionals from industry, academia and municipalities in their communities. In many cases, local institutions support InvenTeams with additional funding, materials and insights.

Each InvenTeam, composed of high school students, teachers and mentors, receives up to $10,000 in grant funding to create and pursue yearlong invention projects that provide hands-on access to STEM education.

As members of the 2009-2010 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam initiative, the Cesar Chavez and Oak Ridge InvenTeams travelled to the White House Science Fair with support from The Lemelson Foundation. The two teams exemplify the goal of the InvenTeam initiative - to encourage youth to
