Bring Young Innovators To Your School

Certified Innovation Leaders are able to license our Young Innovators program which engages students in a world-class design process that ignites their passion and has them build their own solutions to real-world issues.

Students are expertly guided through a series of activities that empower them to take an idea to prototype!

Innovate within the Curriculum

The Young Innovators Program is deeply and directly linked to curriculum. Our methods inherently require students to collect and analyze data; ask increasingly complex questions; solve problems; make informed judgments; build confidence in communicating ideas; understand how to use technology; and work collaboratively with their peers.

The Young Innovators Program is a powerful tool for building inquiry and project based learning!
