Value of Invention Education
In today’s rapidly changing world, proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) matters more than ever. Yet, as important as STEM may be, business decision makers, government leaders and educators are realizing that students’ future success may depend on learning something more.Together with STEM learning or on its own, Invention Education empowers young people to develop the skills and self-confidence they need to identify and solve real-world problems and make informed choices about their future careers.
For students as well as society, the outcomes of this kind of education can be game changing.
The promise of Invention Education has galvanized a community of educators, business decision makers, government leaders and others into a worldwide movement. To advance this movement, a growing number of organizations have coalesced around the idea of combining STEM with Invention and Entrepreneurship (STEMIE) learning to instill problem identification, problem solving, entrepreneurship and creativity skills for life — and to inspire young people to become innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs over the course of their K-12 careers. This is the community that forms the heart of Invention Convention Worldwide.
