About the Monthly Public Invention Gatherings

Our Inventor Gatherings are designed to be an open conversation between various STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) minded individuals (i.e., donors, students, mentors, the next generation of scientists, academic professionals, leaders, startup CEOs, and innovators). We will be providing an exciting STEM and Innovation virtual space to engage in inclusive dialogue and meaningful conversations. This monthly activity will stimulate collaborative learning while also connecting Interns, volunteers, board members, and friends of Public Invention!

With engagement comes awareness, join us on the 3rd Thursday of every month and surprise yourself. We would love to see you!
