National Inventors Hall of Fame

The National Inventors Hall of Fame provides PreK through 8th grade STEM summer camps, clubs and in-class curricula to school districts and communities throughout the country, including the KC metro area. We also provide volunteer opportunities for high school and college students.

National Inventors Hall of Fame developed a high-quality STEAM Ecosystem that provides programming from PreK to adulthood because we have a direct connection to insights from world-changing inventors. We introduce children to the innovation process early on and continue to develop their passion for innovation throughout their lives.

The National Inventors Hall of Fame’s non-profit STEM+ Programs, created in direct partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and more than 560 of the world’s greatest inventors, include curriculum enhancements, after school programs and summer camps for Invention Playground (Pre-K), Camp Invention (K-6/12), Club Invention (1-6), STEM Maker Lab (1-6), Invention Project (6-8), Volunteer Opportunities (high school – college), and Professional Development.

Our problem and inquiry-based learning programs focus on 21st Century skills, invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. They are all turn-key programs that include all the curricula and materials for easy implementation at any level and at any location.
