HOUSTON, TX – High School students participating in the Lemelson-MIT JV InvenTeams pilot program brought their inventions to the Children’s Museum of Houston to prove creativity and ingenuity are ageless.

The JV InvenTeams program opens the world of science, technology, engineering and math to ninth and tenth-graders traditionally lacking access to hands-on enrichment opportunities. It was an invention-fest at the Museum. Some kids crafted a cell phone paper case, some kids designed a shoe sole and some other kids are building a robot to deliver medication to patients.

Houston-area schools participating in the JV invenTeams are: Cypress Springs High School (Cypress), Hastings High School (Houston), KIPP Generations Collegiate High School (Houston), KIPP Sunnyside High School (Houston) and Reagan High School (Houston).

So, the future is bright. And if not, these kids will probably learn how to make a new kind of light bulb.
