Young Inventors' Program (r)

Young Inventors’ Program® (YIP) is a New Hampshire state-wide program started in 2003 and conducted through 600 schools with 5,000 student inventors. YIP helps K-8 students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills by inviting them to invent solutions to everyday problems and reaches/motivates students who may not “fit the mold” for traditional sciences. Ongoing support is provided to teachers via a teacher manual, teacher-to-teacher training, teacher workshops and outside sources, with the goal of incorporating the invention process — creativity and problem solving — into the classroom, as well as through participation in after-school programs. The best from each school are invited to an annual invention celebration to compete for special awards.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal for the Academy of Applied Science (AAS) is to increase the number of students we can encourage to start and continue in STEM education with a long-term goal of helping them pursue a technical career.

The Academy engages students at every age elementary through high school, in meaningful science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) experiences. These are much more than an experiment or a demonstration...these are real hands-on science that require active imaginations and creative problem solving skills. The immersive experience inspires students to consider these STEM disciplines as career choices. These learning opportunities range from 8 weeks to years. The Academy really wants the students to FEEL the science...EXPERIENCE the thrill of discovery...DISCOVER new ideas and to ENJOY doing STEM activities.

We use three programs to engage students in STEM activities:
Young Inventors’ Program® (YIP) is a New Hampshire state-wide program conducted through schools and culminating in an annual competition. YIP helps K-8 students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills by inviting them to invent solutions to everyday problems and reaches/motivates students who may not “fit the mold” for traditional sciences.
Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) is a nation-wide independent research competition that challenges and engages over 8,000 high school students to present their research at university-held regional symposia. Winners advance to the National symposium in April and compete for scholarships.
Research and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) is a 6-8 week internship providing opportunities for underserved and underrepresented high school students to conduct hands-on research and to prepare for future STEM studies at the university level.

More than 75,000 students in the U.S. and Department of Defense schools in Europe and the Pacific have had a long-term and meaningful engagement in STEM through AAS programs. The impact is significant: 87% of the surveyed high school students who participated in AAS programs planned to enroll in STEM studies at the undergraduate level.
Success comes one student at a time. Please read the personal success stories of Academy of Applied Science students at www.aas-world.org/success.
