The Lemelson-MIT Program and MIT J-WEL's pK-12 Collaborative are offering four free professional development opportunities for educators to engage in activities needed to launch students on the pathway to inventing. Learn how to find and define problems, and design and build novel, useful and unique solutions that improve the lives of others.
