Where Young inventors get their start

Learn More

Learn By Doing

Our K-12 Invention Convention curriculum and methods have been developed and put to the test by educators for over 30 years. Our curriculum follows a framework that uses the steps of the invention process. It enables students to understand invention as it takes place in the real world every day.


Our Invention Convention Mission

Through Invention Convention Kaleideum is able to partner with North Carolina schools and organizations to cultivate the skills, confidence, and culture our students need to successfully engage in problem solving and design thinking. We seek to be strong partners with our families, schools, and community members as we prepare future generations for lifelong learning and success.
