Diversity Challenge 2018
The Lemelson-MIT program and Boston College invention education group presented at the annual Diversity Challenge conference in late September. Our symposium included a series of research studies on invention education, including:
(1) curriculum revisions to a JV InvenTeam guide called Chill Out! for multicultural and multilingual learners,
(2) a case study of an in-service teacher's implementation of the revised Chill Out! guide,
(3) research on the impact of students' participation in a one-week invention education camp on their invention motivation and self-efficacy,
(4) an ethnographic study on gender gaps among young inventors who participated in the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams invention experience.
