Cheer on our student inventors at the NICEE in DC!

Posted: May 30 2017

On Thursday, June 1st, 25 Chicago student inventors grades 3-7 will travel to Washington, D.C. to compete in the 2nd Annual National Invention Convention & Entrepreneurship Expo on Saturday, June 3rd. Two student inventors grades K-2 participated in the NICEE virtual competition. Thank you to everyone that helped them get here!

As our young inventors prepare to depart, please help support them on social media. We’ll also be sharing our experiences via the CSIC twitter and facebook page.

Please use hashtags #chikidsinvent and #nicee17.

Sample tweets:

“Congrats to the @ChiKidsInvent student inventors attending the @STEMIECoalition 2nd #nicee17 in DC! #chikidsinvent”

“Shout out to the @ChiKidsInvent student inventors repping Chicago at the @STEMIECoalition 2nd #nicee17 in DC this weekend!”

NBC Chicago studios hosted our student inventors last week, and filmed a piece for their Tech Trends segment, which will air TBD.

The students were very excited to share their inventions with Art Norman and Charlie Wojciechowski and tour the NBC Chicago studios.

Congrats to all of the student inventors going to DC!
