2) Encourage your students to be creative
After you register, we'll send you a toolkit with everything you need to guide kids through the research and design process as they bring their inventions to life.

3) Help your students give back
Students can share their inventions with family and friends and seek "funding" for their idea by asking for donations to support the kids of St. Jude.
