INVENTORS GUILD INT. INVENTOR MEMBERSHIP

OVERVIEW FOR INVENTOR MEMBERSHIP

Membership in the IGI is divided into two categories. This page is for Inventor members age 18+. Please see our Young Inventors page for more information on 17 and under membership.

The Inventors program focus is a project-based experience, leading members in the creation of their own invention. It introduces basic principles of design through out-of-the-box problem solving and critical thinking. 

 

The IGI empowers each member by encouraging them to tap into their skills and interests to create extraordinary things.
