Connecticut Invention Convention Finals
Several Cantor Colburn attorneys will be judges at the Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), including Cantor Colburn Partner and CIC board chair Eric Baron. This year's final competition takes place on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at UConn's Storrs campus. Cantor Colburn is proud to sponsor the Connecticut Invention Convention with the Cantor Colburn Most Patentable Invention Award. Ali Caless and Jim Merrick are Volunteer Judges.
The CIC is an award winning, internationally recognized, 501(c)(3) educational organization open to K-8 students statewide, and is designed to develop, encourage, and enhance critical thinking skills through invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. The annual convention gives students and parents an introduction to careers in engineering with exhibits staffed by UConn's students and professors which showcase engineering subjects, including civil, mechanical and chemical engineering – helping students discover engineering and science as real possible careers, definitely within reach.
