Students and Their Families

The Connecticut Invention Convention is a really rewarding experience, not just for teachers and schools, but students and their families too.  The CIC is all about engaging students in the process of creative problem solving through invention by having students work on solutions to their own unique problems.  Students may participates in CIC through an in-school program, after school activity or through a homeschooling environment.  Guidelines and resources are available to assist parents, teachers and students to provide a unque rewarding learning experience that will provide a solid foundation in problem solving, innovation, and creativity.  Explore the site, and if you have questions please contact-us.

In this section of our site, we provide students and their parents with key facts about the CIC process including important changes to registration, events, and links that can expand your CIC experience.  You find out how to find out information about branding, trademarks and patents.  You can see stories about real kid inventors and how some kids' inventions are featured on TV!

Also, feel free to peruse the Judges area – you can find the instructions we give to the judges for how to judge each invention.  Inventions that adhere to the program rules not only will do well, but also will find the most rich education experience in the process.
