Thank you for your interest in supporting an iINVENT program!

Please reach out and schedule a time to learn more about our school day and summer programs. Currently we are recruiting for Upper Elementary (4-6 grade) teachers to lead a virtual invention program and selecting hosts for summer camps. We hope to work with teachers in rural schools and then have summer camps near those communities. Each participating teacher and camp host receive a $500 stipend. Above is the program flier for the School Day and Afterschool programs, and we are working on updating a flier for our summer programs.  

Please fill out the form below, and then fill out the bookings to set up a short 30 min Zoom session!
