Want to make a difference in the world? Science-minded students can start here. In this competition, students race to identify and create the most ground-breaking invention. Entries must be replicable, fully operable, and the work of an individual or team. Along with a report on the invention, successful applications will include a report of patent research that ensures that the invention is your own idea.
