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

invent technological solutions to real-world problems. The Cesar Chavez High School InvenTeam invented a physical therapy chair for medically fragile individuals to reduce muscular atrophy, and the Oak Ridge High School InvenTeam developed a water purifier that provides more widespread access to clean water in rural Appalachia.

"The Cesar Chavez and Oak Ridge InvenTeams' visit to the White House is a testament to the power of invention to change the world and help others. Their altruistic projects have caught the attention of President Obama. With dedicated teachers and support from the government, corporations and non-profit organizations, students can and will build the academic foundation and technical skills while gaining confidence that they need to become change-makers," says Leigh Estabrooks, the Lemelson-MIT Program's invention education officer, who oversees the InvenTeam initiative.

The selection of the 2010 2011 teams follows a September report from the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), where recommendations were presented to President Obama to improve K-12 STEM education. One key conclusion was the creation of opportunities that prepare and inspire students to engage in STEM activities outside of the classroom, motivating them to pursue careers in these fields.

A respected panel of judges composed of educators, researchers, staff and alumni from MIT, as well as former Lemelson-MIT Program Award winners and innovation industry leaders, selected the InvenTeams from a national pool of applicants based on the technical merits of their proposals for useful and unique devices. Members of the 2010 2011 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam initiative are drawn from public high schools in rural, suburban and urban communities; those schools and their proposed inventions are:
