Bring Our Curriculum to your Classroom, Summer School or After-school Program

Bring Our Curriculum to your ClassroomYou probably know that our Innovation Courseware is perfect as a stand-alone, STEM-aligned course. But it’s also great as a summer school offering, after-school program or remote learning. Your K-12 students will learn the real-world, 9-stop process to innovating and inventing.

Innovation Contests Bring out the Best

One of the cornerstones of our Courseware are the Innovation Contests that conclude the class. Not only is it a great way to showcase student innovator’s, but it’s a great way to teach K-12 students the process of inventing. Most students are familiar with the “Shark Tank” concept, but not everything that goes into getting to that point. Our 9-step process shows students the way it’s done.
