Our Mission

The League of Young Inventors is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit with a mission to enhance STEAM learning, empower teachers, and foster a classroom culture of hands-on experimentation and invention with flexible partnerships and innovative curriculum.

We believe that the principles of experimentation, testing, failure, and refinement are essential for learning and for life, and equip our children with the tools and resilience they’ll need to address local and global problems alike.

Our Impact

  • More than 2,300 students have participated
  • We’ve provided 1900 hours of programming
  • We’ve partnered with 70+ educators
  • We’ve worked with 8 NYC schools and counting

Where We’re Going

Across several years and many phases of development, the League has remained true to its mission: to enhance the STEAM curriculum available to schools, empower teachers through support for project-based learning, and to foster inventor culture in a new generation of students. Beginning with hands-on teaching in our Brooklyn Maker Space, we expanded to in-school residencies and professional development. After years of these formative experiments – with both students and teachers – we launched our hand-off curriculum packages with partner schools. Today we are continuing to grow our portfolio of STEAM units for elementary schools across NYC, and beyond!
