At robotsNOW, we support ALL STEM opportunities and this opportunity looks like a lot of fun! If you’re between 11 and 17 years old, there’s a toy invention competition starting in April. How great is that!? Its sponsored by the KID Museum and Innovation First, Inc. Innovation First is the company that makes HEXBUGS and other high-tech toys. The winner may have their invention produced and marketed by Innovation First!

This is a national competition that “officially” kicks off on April 25th at the KID Museum’s Idea Lab in Maryland. Mr Bob Mimlitch, co-founder of Innovation First, will provide an overview of what goes into toy making and how design entries will be judged.
