Invent Iowa

Invent Iowa, one of the premier programs through the Belin-Blank Center, serves the needs of talented young inventors and their teachers. The Invent Iowa program encourages students to creatively think and solve problems through the invention process. Now in its 26th year, the program has celebrated the work of thousands of students in grades K-12. These novice inventors, whose inventions range from humane mouse traps and mitten driers to devices that make life easier for someone with a disability, continue to amaze and inspire us with their inventions.
