Do you believe in Innovative Education? We do.
We believe that the status quo of lecture-based classrooms and standardized teaching-to-the-test is not enough.
Join us to...
1. Celebrate the hard work and endless commitment of educators, startups, and non-profits across the country who have been working tirelessly to change the status quo with their innovative ideas.
2. Lauch the “Invention Experience,” a national initiative using the power of invention and entrepreneurship to inspire under-served students about STEM. With support from the Lemelson Foundation, we're developing a program built upon a structure of culturally-relevant motivational experiences combined with long-term, in-depth engagement for students.
3. Network with other innovative education professionals. Learn from the Lemelson Foundation about their work supporting invention education and expore other innovative programs including ISIS Youth, the Cleantech Open, the Startup Experience, and our own Youth Ambassadors.
