About the Inventioneers Patent Scholarship

For those of you new to our program, we are the Inventioneers, a non-profit public charity. We began as a FIRST® LEGO® League
(FLL®) team back in 2004 and had amazing success in that program (we still need to pinch ourselves every once in a while).
We were the four time NH State FLL® Champions and in April of 2010, we earned the Champions Award at the FLL® World Festival
in Atlanta, GA.

We have a utility patent pending at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Important Announcement:

Program Re-Launch Coming Fall 2016!!

Inventioneers' Quote of the Day

"A patent, or invention, is any assemblage of technologies or ideas that you can put together that nobody put together that way before.  That's how the patent office defines it.  That's an invention."
