Young Inventors Sponsor imageYoung Inventors Program provides free tickets to children of participating elementary schools!

The SoCal Maker Convention is dedicated to providing an enriching and inspiring environment where young inventors can be empowered through discovery of science and technology.

The program was launched last year with great success! Over 50 schools participated and we were able to give out over 2,500 free tickets.

Here’s how it works:

An administrator or teacher must reach out to register your school in the program. Once added to the program, the school will be awarded 20 – 100 (depending on need) free tickets for ages 11 and under on a first-come first-serve basis as the program is funded. Adult tickets not included, so please purchase separately.

Don’t delay in getting your school or club registered for the program!
