The I Cubed Challenge is a special, optional strand within the five basic categories of the I Cubed program. Each year the theme changes; for example, one year the theme may be “medical” inventions, and the next year the theme may be “sustainability” for planet-awareness inventions. Students may still enter ANY invention in ANY category for state competitions; they do NOT have to follow the annual theme. However, if they do have an invention, which follows the I Cubed Challenge theme for that year, the student may choose to ALSO enter the on-line portion of the I Cubed program. Young inventors will simply have their teacher or parent register for the NATIONAL I Cubed Challenge by clicking the tab on the menu bar. Be sure to check the NEWS tab often for information about the new annual theme and deadlines for this special I Cubed Challenge. The Grand Champion will be selected from entries submitted nationwide. What an honor to be named the best young inventor in the USA!
THE 2018 I CUBED CHALLENGE THEME IS "WELL BEING INVENTIONS"! Click on the PDF at the bottom of this page to view the 2018 I Cubed Challenge Theme Poster.
