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. Entries will be judged on inventiveness and originality. Finalists will be sent to Washington DC to present their work.
