Innovation Education is Making Waves Globally as Student Invention from Jordan Earns Licensing Agreement

One shining example comes from Jordan, where students engaged in the Youth Innovation Project, a collaborative effort between Amideast, the Jordan Ministry of Youth, and Inventionland®Education. These students conceptualized and crafted the “Amazing H2O Lid,” emerging as winners in the end-of-course invention contest and earning a real-world licensing agreement.

This groundbreaking initiative underscores the commitment of organizations like Amideast to foster educational and professional opportunities across the Middle East, Western Asia, and North Africa. Partnering with the Jordan Ministry of Youth, Amideast facilitates career development and English language programs, promoting lifelong learning and advancing dialogue between the U.S. and Jordan.

Mr. George Davison, President and CEO of Inventionland®Education, expressed his excitement at seeing young entrepreneurs flourish through the program. “It’s especially gratifying to be doing this on a global scale,” he remarked, emphasizing the universal capacity for innovation regardless of geographical location.

In addition to fostering entrepreneurship, Amideast offers the Arab Women’s Entrepreneurship Program (AWEP), further bolstering efforts to cultivate innovation and economic opportunities in Jordan. This collaborative approach, supported by the Jordan Ministry of Youth, promises to transform lives and drive economic growth.
