Inventors can learn how to protect their idea, turn it into a business and sell to the public at a one-day workshop on June 1 at Farmingdale State College.

The free event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., is being presented by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It will be held in the ballroom of the college’s Campus Center. Lunch will not be provided.

The USPTO Inventor Day event is being hosted by the college's Small Business Development Center, which also presents monthly meetings of the Long Island Inventors and Entrepreneurs Club.

Club founder and inventor Brian Fried said the workshop offers the opportunity “for local inventors to find out about the resources available from the USPTO and on Long Island.”
