About Us

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and The Lemelson Foundation have partnered to create the AAAS-Lemelson Invention Ambassadors Program designed to celebrate and highlight the importance of invention and inventors.

Through our partnership, we strive to enrich a fresh and diverse generation of young inventors worldwide by expanding global understanding of the role of invention in creating new products, building new intuitive businesses, and cultivating the importance of invention education to foster innovation.

Understanding the need for invention, the knowledge that invention helps to create and the dual and complementary roles of invention and innovation for 21st century public problem solving is critical!

Every aspect of our problem solving requirements must be considered and acted upon including talent creation; the skill-set, aspirations and inspiration from our inventors; science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) basic research; and the innovation ecosystem. Meet the team.
