The Linda Hall Library’s 2nd annual Kansas City Invention Convention, an affiliate program of The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, opens this fall for students in grades 4 through 12.

With the support of teachers and mentors, and one-of-a-kind tips from living inventors and industry experts, students embark on a journey of creativity and growth. Students will present their inventions to judges at the competition in April 2022 and where they will have a chance to win prizes, scholarships and an opportunity to go to nationals.
Samantha Hollingsworth, Program Manager of the Kansas City Invention Convention, will provide an overview of KCIC and answer your questions about how your students can join and succeed in the competition. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about this exciting program.
This free, online program will take place via Zoom. Registration is currently open and will remain open until the event has ended. After you register you will receive an email with a link to join the session.
