Anneliese Gegenheimer, Director and Founder
Anneliese started the Chicago Student Invention Convention in 2012 as a program of Sustain Foundation.  As a consultant for IBM and Chicagoan, she is passionate about empowering students in Chicago to innovate and solve problems.

Anneliese values the skills she learned while participating in the Central Ohio Invention Convention as an elementary school student, which impacted and shaped her personal growth.  She has also run an Invention Camp in Arusha, Tanzania, where primary school students face very different problems than students in Chicago.  You can learn more about her story via her blog post here
