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. Today's education is primarily based on curriculum, which stresses specific subject matter. This new "inventucation" technique is compatible with any existing curriculum in both the Arts and Sciences and trains the teacher to use a method by which creative thinking, critical thinking and innovation, with a hint of invention, are applied to existing educational concepts. We also tailor this philosophy for the professional world for corporate development and training. This is the essential way to kick-start and ignite any internship program. The fusion of invention and scientific or artistic principles results in "inventucation."

Many students and teachers who helped solve educational problems are featured in the Frey Scientific Catalog. FREY Scientific contributed four pages of their catalog to announce an opportunity for students and teachers to earn royalties and national recognition by using their inventive skills. This program welcomes both students and teachers to submit an original device that demonstrates a difficult-to-understand science concept. If the device is both effective and marketable, FREY Scientific is interested in the possibility of paying a royalty in return for offering it in their catalog. Each year, the FREY Scientific catalog features more devices invented by students and teachers. Each of these new products is identified by the Museum's logo. Student- and teacher-developed devices are identified in the FREY catalog with the National Museum of Education's logo.
