Collegiate Inventors Competition

Children have an opportunity to stretch their horizons by participating in Camp Invention during the summer. College and graduate students have a chance to extend that participation to a higher level in the annual Collegiate Inventors Competition. The deadline for participating this year is June 16, 2009. Last year's grand prize winner was Timothy Lu of Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology for inventing Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria and Bacterial Biofilms with Engineered Bacteriophage and Synthetic Gene Sensors.
