On May 18, 2017, St. Thomas University’s School of Education and The Learning Partnership will co-host an Invention Convention. 70 budding student inventors from Grades 7 and 8 will exhibit their creations designed to solve problems or satisfy a previously under-served market niche. From 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM the public is invited to walk the venue (Brian Mulroney Hall) to explore the interactive exhibits and speak with students about their clever inventions.
 
These events are the culmination of The Learning Partnership’s Investigate! Invent! Innovate!™ Program, which integrates science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills with global competencies such as critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication to enable students to succeed in the globally competitive workplace.
