Innovative Educators: Do you have a cool job? Would your job inspire students? This is your chance to talk with students about how you got there! Participate in our Presentation Challenge to highlight your organization or field, but you have to do it in under 3 minutes! Or showcase your workplace with an information booth. 

Innovative Exhibitors: Do you have a cool science or engineering project you want to show off? From model steam engines to a replica R2D2, Lego art, telescopes, 3D printers, drones, programs, hacks, or garage creations -- whatever your imagination can conceive and your hands can build, you can display and explain it!

Innovative Artists: Do you have an art project that's also a science project? If you want to present your innovative interpretation on art and science this is your chance! Display your work or show off your performance.  We want your art and science mash-up!

Innovative Everyone: Not sure where you fit? No worries! We want innovation, and innovation won't fit in a box. Tell us about your job, project, artwork or whatever anyway!
