The League of Young Inventors is a growing nonprofit start-up with a mission to make interdisciplinary hands-on science learning accessible to a wide range of kids, both inside and outside of school. We take kids on an exciting journey to unlock the mystery and magic behind how things work, while giving them the space to experiment, invent, embrace failure, and have fun.
