We’re Awarding Innovation Grants to Districts and Schools
Inventionland®Education is Awarding Innovation Grants. Here’s How to Apply.
Inventionland®Education provides K-12 educators with an engaging STEM/STEAM-based curriculum that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before.
Using our proprietary 9-step method, student groups work through the immersive process of bringing innovation to life in a real-world environment that inspires creativity, teamwork, and critical-thinking skills.
Aligned to state standards, it leverages the same key concepts used by Inventionland®for over 30 years in helping corporations turn ideas into actual products. Students use these concepts to develop their idea into a fully-formed products, applying STEM/STEAM learning while learning crucial career and life skills along the way.
The course is student-driven and teaches the fundamentals of inventing, innovation, and entrepreneurship, culminating in an actual business pitch during a final Invention Contest. You could think of it as a science fair combined with Shark Tank.
A Class Loved by Students and Educators Alike
Teachers do not need to have previous “making” or “innovation” experience with this course. All that’s needed is an inquiring mind, observation skills, and the ability to inspire creativity in their students.
Students learn how to work together, leveraging the strengths of everyone in their group to bring an idea to market. This develops some of the most in-demand soft skills needed by future employers, including communication (both listening and speaking), brainstorming, problem-solving, teamwork, empathy, leadership, conflict resolution, decision-making, and more.
Working and contributing as a team emulates some of the most crucial real-work situations required for STEM/STEAM careers.
