Thank you for your interest in the Invention Convention Michigan [ICM] Wayne County Regional Hub Competition, hosted by the STEM Innovation Learning Center at Wayne State University!

 This competition is for all students in Wayne County in grades 3-12, working independently or as a team of up to four students to create an invention that solves a problem in their life, the life of a loved one or their world. Students will submit their project to compete to be judged at our regional hub competition, with the highest scoring projects advancing to compete at the state competition, with the hopes of advancing to the U.S. national competition.
