Special Thanks to Don Jacobs for his generous support of the National Gallery for America's Young Inventors!
Inventucation™, as defined by the National Museum of Education, combines both the words "invent" and "education". The theory behind the creation of this word is that all invention is the result of an innovative, creative way of learning, fusing science and critical thinking. The Inventucator™ Magazine showcases individuals who exemplify the spirit of "inventucation" by promoting innovation through education.
The National Gallery for America's Young Inventors ™ is the only nationally recognized hall of fame for student inventors, established in 1993 and given permission by the adult National Inventors Hall of Fame Board in Washington, D.C. to archive and enshrine great student inventions and inventors K-12.
