Our 2022 event is Hybrid!
Inventions will be submitted and judged online
Due to the unusual times we continue to experience, we’ve chosen to hold our event online for a third year. Our inventors will submit a 4-5 minute video explaining their process, prototype, and display board. This video will be judged online by professionals in STEM fields from all over WNY. Our Judges are honored to be a part of this event, as they believe deeply in supporting inventors of all ages! Category and Grade winners as well as invitees to the National Invention Convention will come from these submissions.
New this year- the Inventor Showcase!
While Category and Grade awards will be solely based on the Inventor Video submissions, we are ALSO providing a venue- the Buffalo Museum of Science- for any of our participants to present their inventions to LIVE judges!* This event will be OPTIONAL and will provide an opportunity for participants to hone their confidence and communication skills. The Judges will be different from the online judges and the criteria for the ADDITIONAL Communication awards will be specific to the inventor’s live presentation and ability to answer questions about their process and prototype, etc. There will be special activities and giveaways for all participating attendees and the Award Ceremony for this event will also be live.
*COVID Protocols for the Buffalo Museum of Science will be observed at all times
