NIHF’s Approach to Education

With over 30 years of experience developing innovative invention education programming for school districts across the country, the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF) is a leader in developing hands-on curricula that ignites children’s natural curiosity.

This pedagogy is designed to meet the immediate needs of school districts across the country who are working hard to both help their students catch up academically and ignite their natural curiosity. By crafting experiences that challenge students to solve real-world problems through the act of invention prototyping, participants are invited to take risks and build confidence in an encouraging and supportive environment.

Our flexible, in- and out-of-school PreK-8 programs are designed to engage and energize both educators and students throughout the whole year. We can help you build the right solutions, from enrichment add-ons to complete, multiweek STEM curricula that includes everything you need for stress-free implementation.
