kids invent webinar october 9th

Do you know a kid between the ages of 6 and 12 who is eager to help solve problems for the greater good? Then join us for a kids invent webinar! Put these young minds to the test through the next ideas4ears children’s invention contest that aims to come up with solutions for people living with hearing loss.

To learn more about the upcoming contest and how it works, we are joining forces to present you with a kids invent webinar involving Lemelson-MIT, Deaf Kids Code and Invention Convention. This special webinar will give a background into ideas4ears and explain the details of the contest and application process.

The best overall invention ideas will win a grand prize trip to Innsbruck, Austria for the winning children and their guardians who will be able to meet with MED-EL’s many inventors and to see where real hearing loss inventions come to life.
