Young Inventors Showcase

Young Inventors
Association of America
Presents the      
30th Annual
Young Inventors’

2018 Showcase of Houston


Are you looking to give your students a practical application for using scientific processes? Take science and innovation to the next level by inviting your students to participate in the Young Inventor’s Showcase or even better, host an “Inventors’ Showcase” at your school! Students will conduct research, apply their science knowledge, and utilize their innovation and design skills as they create their own inventions!

Individual students or winners of your school’s Inventors’ Showcase can apply to the city-wide 30th Annual Young Inventors’ Showcase of Houston at the "University of Houston", where your students have a chance to win a patent! The grand prizewinner will work with an attorney to potentially receive a patent for their invention.  Previous winners used earnings from marketing their inventions to help pay for college expenses!  Entry in the Showcase is free and open to all children in Kindergarten through Eighth grade.  Applications for Showcase must be post-marked by April 15th, 2018 and the competition will be held at "University of Houston" on May 19, 2018.
