Invention Convention Michigan

COVID-19 Update: The health and safety of our staff, guests, students and volunteers are The Henry Ford’s top priority. As the spread of novel coronavirus continues to impact our world, our nation and now our state, we, as an organization, have been evaluating and exploring all options regarding our venues and operations.

As such, we have decided that the best course of action is to move Invention Convention Michigan from an in-person competition to an online-only event this year. We are asking for your patience and understanding as we move forward with this plan.

This change in venue is not only in regard to the health and safety of all the participants, but to ensure that the hard work of the young inventors is still recognized and awarded. Please email with any questions regarding Invention Convention Michigan.

Invention Convention Michigan provides students in grades 3-12 an interactive and interdisciplinary opportunity to use the invention process to create and pitch an original product at a state-wide convention. Students will build their critical thinking and entrepreneurial skills and may qualify to compete at Invention Convention U.S. Nationals.

The Henry Ford hopes that Invention Convention Michigan will bring together problem-solvers, inventors, and entrepreneurs of all ages, backgrounds, and disciplines.
