Join the National Inventors Hall of Fame™ (Canada) (NIHF Canada) and The Science Teachers’ Association of Ontario/ L’Association des professeurs de science de l’Ontario (STAO/APSO) for a unique bilingual professional development opportunity on the topic of intellectual property (IP) and its role in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM/STEM) education.
This is the first in a new series of webinars. In this webinar titled “Invention Education: Why Intellectual Property is Critical to STEM Learning”, our panellists will provide an overview of IP concepts and share insights into how hands-on invention education programming with inventor role models inspires students to pursue STEM-related studies and careers.
The panellists for this webinar include Béatrice T. Ngatcha, a lawyer and patent agent with Lavery de Billy, L.L.P. in Montreal and Shelley Jones, Vice President with NIHF Canada in Ottawa.
Béatrice holds a doctoral degree in chemistry from Université Laval and has been a post-doctoral fellow at the National Research Council in Ottawa. In addition to a busy patent prosecution practice serving Canadian and clients from around the world, Béatrice’s expertise is sought in the areas of intellectual property litigation, trade secrets, due diligence, strategy, portfolio value building, licensing and arbitration.
Shelley is a lawyer and trademark agent having worked both in private practice and in-house on matters relating to trademark and copyright infringement, litigation, managing global trademark portfolios, domain name disputes and anti-counterfeiting issues. Shelley currently leads NIHF Canada’s mission to inspire young inventors through innovative educational programming.
