Can't Touch This! Family Invention Contest- Webinar Kickoff!

July 20, 2020

Can't Touch This! Family Invention Contest

EPAM Continuum, Joylabz/Makey Makey, and Instructables are hosting a new contest that challenges families with kids age 18 and under to invent hands-free solutions for accomplishing everyday tasks safely. In the Covid-19 era, how can invent new ways to interact with things and each other safely?

We are kicking off the contest with a webinar where we discuss ideas for hands-free inventions with a panel of inventors

Goal For Contest 

Our goals for this program are to promote a culture of invention and empower as many kids as possible to make contact-less solutions that promote safer interaction with people and the environment. We hope to reach tons of parents and kids with this message and see submissions from a magnitude of families.
