California Invention Convention Inventors honored at State Capitol in Sacramento

On January 13, in honor of Kid Inventors Day, January 17 (also Benjamin Franklin’s birthday), the California Invention Convention went to the State Capitol Building in Sacramento to meet with our Assembly Members and Senators to introduce them to Invention Education.  Read more.

The California Invention Convention envisions a day when EVERY child in California has the chance to follow his/her natural curiosity, invent creative solutions to problems, and be inspired to achieve his/her highest level of personal accomplishment. Through these efforts, California’s future will be brighter and its workforce more capable and productive.
