What is MTIP?
The Master Teacher of Invention Education Program (MTIP) is a train-the-trainer program supported by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and STEMisED. Experienced educators who have knowledge of invention or intellectual property (IP) education may apply to become teacher leaders and will provide professional development opportunities to other educators. MTIP teacher-leaders will share USPTO resources and their practical classroom experience with educators across the nation.
The mission of MTIP is to cultivate a network of teacher-leaders who will empower educators to foster invention and IP education for their students.
