Launch

Mentor young inventors and changemakers

In addition to our yearlong program that brings students from idea to prototype, we’re starting Launch, a 1:1 mentorship program to match professionals to Project Invent teams looking to bring their inventions from working prototype to the hands of real users.

We work with high school students nationwide to empower them to invent technologies for social good. Many of our students started with little to no engineering experience, and learn to engineer and code through the process of inventing real solutions for problems in their communities. From on-the-field kits for detecting early signs of concussions to adaptive game controllers for teenagers with cerebral palsy, our students invent technologies that matter. The teams in the Launch program have already secured funding and built a working prototype through Project Invent: now they need your help to bring their inventions to the next level.
