August is National Inventors Month

August is National Inventors Month, an extended celebration of American invention and creativity. The event, started in 1998 by the United Inventors Association of the USA, the Academy of Applied Science, and Inventors' Digest magazine, helps promote a positive image of inventors and highlights their real contributions to the world.

Invention is, of course, close to the heart of NCIIA, and in the spirit of National Inventors Month we'll be presenting profiles of our student inventors each week throughout the month of August.
