  • Invention Incorporated: The Business of Inventing

    Invention Incorporated is a program for top placing students at the Ohio Invention Convention & Entrepreneurship Competition. It is an online program created by Venture Learning to help inventors with the build and launch piece of inventing. Inventors have a solution to a problem (prototype) and Invention Incorporated helps them learn about protecting their invention, creating a business, marketing and funding all at home at their own pace. Inventors are supported with video /virtual classroom calls, led by Invention League & Venture Learning, they can join as well as field trip opportunities to support the modules within the program. The course concludes with a mock Invention Convention where inventors present their improved invention, materials and presentations in preparation for the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE).

  • Invention League proudly Presents the…

    Ohio Invention Convention & Entrepreneurship Competition

    July 29, 2018 at the Ohio State Fair

    New this Year:

    Based on feedback we received from inventors, teachers and parents last year, we have reformatted the competition from a larger, 7-hour event to, two 4-hour events, each with their own awards ceremony. 

    The youngest inventors will participate in the morning competition and the oldest inventors will participate in the afternoon competition (the grade level for each competition will be confirm once registration has closed and we have a final count for the number of inventors in each participating grade).

    This new format will shorten the time commitment for most participants to 4 hours, allowing families more time to explore all the Ohio State Fair has to offer.

    Registration – This is an invitation only event.  Registration instructions are provided through the “Congratulatory” letter that Invention League provides to your district to provide to the students they wish to advance to the state final.  If you have not received the letter, but believe you should have, please check with your school or district level Invention Convention contact.
