Balloon-based notification sign wins the FIRST® LEGO® League Global Innovation Award

from IAEM

For the past year, IAEM has been a proud Partner in Innovation sponsor of this year's FIRST® Lego® League (FLL®) challenge — Nature's Fury. The Global Innovation Award was presented on June 3 at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to a group of six nine-year-old boys, The Brain Busters. They created a balloon-based notification sign that can be used post-disaster and in other applications. During the awards presentation, The Brain Busters talked about meeting with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency while doing their research. They were among 10 teams out of more than 500 worldwide chosen by a panel of experts to receive free submission into Edison Nation's online platform where they will undergo Edison Nation's submission review process. This includes competitive landscape and initial IP review as well as considerations to development, materials, and analysis of cost/value relationship. Additionally, these ten teams will participate in a Q&A session with Edison Nation via email/questionnaire, with the Q&A results published in Inventors Digest. All ten of the submissions solve problems related to disasters (nature's fury) and may be reviewed on the event website. IAEM congratulates all of the participating teams for tackling the challenge and thanks members who assisted teams during the past year. more
