Transformation of Education to an Innovation Age
What We Believe
We believe students from PreK to Grade 12 need to acquire the skills of innovation to be best prepared for the 21st century and beyond for success in career, college and life. These skills include collaboration, communication, creative thinking, problem solving with reasoning, innovation and entrepreneurship with a connection to the real world.
We empower Teachers, Principals and School Administrators worldwide by providing them with high quality STEM professional development and strategies to achieve these student outcomes. We believe teachers play an immeasurable role in empowering students. Our premier STEM Revolution professional development experts train teachers and principals in how to facilitate this shift through such techniques of Design Thinking, Peak Learning, Growth Mindset, Digital and Technology and Project Based Learning. For schools and districts, we facilitate development of STEM Strategic plans to help create school-wide processes and structure to support the STEM Shift and be sustainable.
"Anything that we have to learn to do we learn by the actual doing of it… We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate ones, brave by doing brave ones."
Such learning is complemented by reason – and this involves teaching 'the causes of things'.
WHAT SOME OF OUR STUDENTS ARE DOING...
Alex Knoll Invents "Ability App"
At only 10 years old Alex Knoll submitted a prototype for an App called Ability App to Invent Idaho, a non-profit student invention competition, and won the Best Of Show in the State of Idaho. Alex then submitted the App to I Cubed, a National Student Invention Competition, and became the National Grand Champion! He was then asked to be featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show where he was given a donation of $25,000 to help to build out his Ability App.
Students Team Up With NASA
Launching Their Own Satalite with Project DaVinci
Project DaVinci is a team of high school students in rural North Idaho working with the community’s best mentors to launch a SATELLITE! As the only high school chosen by NASA to launch in 2017, the team is looking to connect everyone to space again. "We are determined to reignite the magic of the Apollo days," said team member Joe Broder. The team has recognized the lack of enthusiasm shown towards space in the recent years and aims to use tools such as social media and virtual reality to give students and individuals alike a personal connection with space
