During the 2018-2019 school year, our team was selected as a Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam. Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams are teams of high school students, educators, and mentors that receive grants of up to 10,000 dollars each to provide technological solutions to real-world problems.  We received a 10,000 dollar grant to develop and build our invention, and the opportunity to present our invention at the end of the year at MIT to other InvenTeams and members of the MIT community. At MIT, we were able to see the brilliance of other school’s project as well as presenting our own and sharing our ideas and prototypes. We were able to get advice from members of the MIT community, including graduate students and professors. We received many ideas to guide us in the future of our project and are grateful for the opportunity to showcase our invention from the Lemelson-MIT foundation.
