“I was thoroughly impressed by the inventiveness and creativity demonstrated by the young inventors who participated in Inventanooga. Their inventions give me hope that this new generation will be able to find solutions to complex problems that my generation is still wrestling with.”

-Stephanie Couch, Ph.D, Executive Director, Lemelson-MIT, 2018 Inventanooga Judge
