New to Invention Education? — The full grade band curriculum is available for you to take your students through the invention process from start to finish.
Already Doing Something Fun? — NFTE, Robotics Club, Science Fair, another specific curriculum. Whatever your students are already engaged with, CSIC can be the authentic audience and venue for their hard work.
Wide Reach at Different Settings — We are open to all K-8 in-school and after school programs and classrooms in the Chicagoland region.
Growing Hybrid Options– CSIC was forced to become a virtual program from 2020-2021. In future years, CSIC will continue to expand its hybrid options for a mixture of in-person and virtual engagement opportunity.
Implementation Possibilities– A flexible program, ideal for 10 weeks, but scalable to an Invention Week or Invention Month. Fits before, during, or after school. Minimum 1 student inventor and no maximum. Involve a whole grade level or multiple classes!
