” STEMIE Coalition-fueled National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship (NICEE) event is an annual celebration of K-12 inventors and entrepreneurs from across the U.S. This far-reaching forum is the marquee event of The STEMIE Coalition. The event provides a live, in-person opportunity for youth inventors and entrepreneurs in grades 3-12 to display their critical thinking skills through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurial activities.  NICEE 2018 is presented by United Technologies Corporation.

This is an invitation-only event. The goal is to inspire tomorrow’s youth by creating this national showcase those whose efforts embody America’s inventive and entrepreneurial spirit. It’s the youth invention and entrepreneurship equivalent of the Intel Science and Engineering Fair.

Each year, student “winners” from affiliate member youth invention and entrepreneurship competitions across the U.S. are invited to attend NICEE. The event acts as a U.S. national “finals” competition of local, regional, state and sectional invention competitions across the U.S. “Feeder” events will not only include invention conventions and entrepreneurship competitions across the U.S., but also science fair and engineering competitions wherein projects meet the submission requirements of the NICEE event. Also, each year, a limited number of students are issued invitations through the STEMIE Independent Inventor Program screening program.”- http://www.stemie.org.
