Howtoons has collaborated with Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams to help join in the initiative to encourage and inspire the new inventors of tomorrow. Our first project is a visual communication guide that was developed to help get your big ideas out of your head and down on paper.
InvenTeams are teams of high school students, teachers, and mentors that invent technological solutions to real-world problems.
Below are a couple of examples of some of the exciting inventions coming out of the InvenTeam initiative. The videos were produced by Twin Cities Public Television for Make: television.
