The Milford Education Foundation is excited to present the first city-wide Milford Invention Convention, in association with the renowned Connecticut Invention Convention.

The Milford Invention Convention is open to kindergarten through grade 8 students and is designed to develop and enhance critical thinking skills through invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. Finalists have the opportunity to advance to the 31st annual Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), which brings hundreds of young inventors from across the state together to present at the University of Connecticut. Previous CIC finalists have had their inventions patented, displayed at the Connecticut Science Center, featured in New York Times articles and on national television.

In preparation for the Milford Invention Convention, the Milford Education Foundation and the Milford Public Library will be running workshops on Saturday mornings from January-March 2014 for kindergarten through grade 5 at the library. Harborside and West Shore Middle Schools, as well as the YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club, will also be running their own workshops.
