Over 60 brownies completed four interactive IP tutorials (How to be an Inventor, Patents, Trade Marks and Copyrights) to earn their IP Patch and Inventor’s Badge. Keelan is dedicated to helping young women increase their awareness of creation and protection of intellectual property, particularly as it relates to the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
