Throughout the year, children are invited to participate by developing a completely original invention or making improvements to an existing invention. During the city-wide 25th Annual Young Inventors' Showcase on May 18, 2013, the very best of these inventions will be showcased and judged for their ingenuity and merit. This Showcase takes place at the Children’s Museum of Houston highlighting the efforts of Houston-area children from kindergarten through eighth grade. Winners are awarded by grade level and the grand prize winner receives the services of a patent attorney to research and request a patent for the invention. Find out how to enter.
