Have you ever wondered how inventors actualize their ideas?
For US residents, one great option is the American-Made Challenges. These challenges are a series of prize competitions funded by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Challenges are intended to shorten the time it takes to release new technologies, connect bright minds, and spark revolutionary scientific conversations. If you have a great idea but lack resources or hands to work on it with you, start a conversation in the American-Made Challenges forum and see where it takes you. Additionally, follow their page for updates on future challenges and contest developments.
