Idaho Young Inventors Shine at National Invention Convention

Young inventors from Idaho won six major awards at the National Invention Convention in Washington, DC., May 20-21.  The event was hosted by the US Patent Office and Trademark Office. Over 240 young inventors in grades 3-12 from 21 states participated in the first National Invention Convention, created by the STEMie Coalition.  Sponsors included Microsoft, United Technologies, Stanley Tools, and the Lemelson Foundation.  One third of the 18 Idaho attendees placed at this auspicious event, which was a superb showing for Idaho. 

The Idaho winners were:

  • Corrine Pixton, a 4th grader from Boise, Idaho, won two awards for her “Mow Safe” invention:  Second Place for all Fourth Grade inventions and the Government/Safety Award sponsored by the Washington Home Land Security Roundtable.
  • Joshua McKenna, a 6th grader from Rathdrum, Idaho, won the prestigious “Best Poster” display award for his “Porta Potty Survival Kit” invention.  This clever display was in the shape of a porta potty mounted on a turntable, so that all sides containing information about his invention could be viewed easily.
  • Evelyn Hollis, a 5th grader from Meridian, Idaho, won the Community and Societal Benefits Award for her invention “The Learning Pod”, which would help the homeless gain educational skills.  The Community Award was sponsored by the Lemelson Foundation.
  • Zachary Linford, a 3rd grader from Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, won the Environmental Award for his invention “The Hawksbill Hatchling Helper”, which is designed to assist endangered baby turtles to find their way to the ocean.
  • Pragathi Durga Rajarajan, a 6th grader from Boise, Idaho, earned the highly-coveted Jules Verne Award for her “Tornado Catcher” invention, which would cause tornadoes to dissipate.  The Jules Verne award is for highly theoretical and futuristic invention ideas.

 

ABOUT INVENT IDAHO:

Young inventors in grades 1-12 are inspired and recognized for their innovations through the Invent Idaho student invention program, an annual event which includes three Regional qualifying invention competitions and the Invent Idaho State Finals.  Inventors’ projects are judged and awarded in grade level divisions as well as five categories:  Working Models, Non-Working Models, Adaptations, Gadgets and Games, and the Jules Verne Category.  Winners at each Regional competition progress to the Invent Idaho State Finals, held at the University of Idaho in Moscow.  Best of Show and Best of Category winners receive Science kit awards, as well as an invitation to “pitch” their invention at the University of Idaho’s Engineering EXPO.  In addition, top inventors were invited to the first National Invention Convention in Washington, DC.  For further information about how to participate or become a sponsor, visit www.inventidaho.com.

I Cubed Challenge Winner Partners with Senndex

Idaho fourth grader and Invent Idaho Best of Show winner Alexander Knoll received an amazing offer at the 2015 Think Big Festival on Friday, August 21.  Alex, the national I Cubed Challenge winner for 2015, was invited to partner with Senndex to develop his award-winning idea for disabled individuals entitled the “Ability App”.  Mr. Guy Frakes of Senndex announced that he would be joining Alexander Knoll as a partner in the development of the Ability App and stated that, while Alex will remain as President and CEO of his own company, Mr. Frakes will make sure that the project is fully funded.  Numerous other companies and app developers are now jumping in to provide their talents and services for Alex’s company to ensure release within six months.

I Cubed Inventions, a nonprofit student invention competition and curriculum, is experiencing exponential growth nationwide.  I Cubed, which stands for “Inspire, Ignite, Invent” functions as an incubator for our nation’s creative youth to be recognized and awarded for their innovations.  To learn how your child’s school can participate or to see how your company can become an I Cubed national sponsor, visit our website at icubedusa.org or view the “I Cubed Promo Video” on YouTube.

PATENT ADVISORY!

PLEASE NOTE:  THE PATENT PROCESS HAS CHANGED IN THE UNITED STATES!  IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR CHILD HAS AN INVENTION WORTHY OF RECEIVING A PATENT, PROTECT IT!  In the past, proof of the invention process was the standard for receiving a patent.  However, now the law entitles the FIRST person in line at the patent office to patent an invention, regardless of who actually thought of the idea.  CONSIDER INVESTING IN A PROVISIONAL PATENT FOR YOUR INVENTION!  More information http://www.uspatentoffice.com/
