History of KNIGHTS OF EDISON
The KNIGHTS OF EDISON club was created in 2015 as a fan club providing scientific and educational mentoring services and programs. This club invited inventors who were inspired by Thomas Edison to unite, collaborate on innovative ideas, and connect to become the most successful inventors they can be. Over the years, in collaboration with the Edison Innovation Foundation & Charles Edison Fund, the club has invited more and more young students who show promise as inventors and entrepreneurs to become part of a like-minded community from a young age, with access to older mentors who can steer them in the right direction.
