Lemelson Foundation - Improving Lives through Invention

Established by Jerome Lemelson, one of America’s most prolific inventors, the Lemelson Foundation sparks, sustains and celebrates innovation and the inventive spirit.

"We focus our activities on educating the inventors of tomorrow, supporting innovators from idea to impact, and delivering technologies that improve people’s lives:

  • From the Classroom to the Real World. The Foundation builds the next generation of inventors by engaging students in hands-on learning opportunities. We believe that the ability to pursue a career as an inventor should be available to all. Towards this end we support activities that inspire girls and minority youth to pursue careers in science, engineering and technology. Education and Inspiration support includes The Lemelson-MIT program, The Lemelson Center at the Smithsonian, and the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA)."
