Description

Youth Innovation Summit

Theme: "Possibilities"

The Triangle Uplift Foundation is proud to partner with the Triangle Martin Luther King, Jr.
Committee to sponsor a Youth Innovation Summit for young people in the Triangle area. The goal is to
reach minority, female, and other underrepresented students by providing an opportunity to increase
students’ confidence and identity, and to inspire them to pursue study in STEAM-related fields of study.
The Summit will provide a rich, collaborative environment exposing them to innovative ideas and
programming that will ignite their interests and help them see pathways to a successful future in these
careers. The event will target middle and high schools students in the Triangle area.


Structure: The Youth Innovation Summit will be an event where participants will engage in a variety of
activities including: guest speakers, hands on workshops, and participatory activities. Examples would
include: drone and aerial photography, robotics, programming and gaming, forensic chemistry, digital
storytelling, and beats making hackathon. There will also be innovation immersion sessions for parents to
provide them with the tools to help inspire, support, and develop their students’ interest in STEAM
learning.
