Our Vision

We envision a world in which all young learners have access to innovation, invention and entrepreneurial learning to gain the confidence and skills to control their own destiny and help shape a better future.

In realizing this vision, our goals are to:

  • Increase the return on investment on STEM and Entrepreneurship by more effectively bridging these disciplines, with a stronger and more innovative collective outcome.
  • Instill problem-identification, problem-solving, entrepreneurship and creativity skills for life to inspire young people to become innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs over the course of their K-12 careers.
  • Activate STEMIE (STEM + Invention + Entrepreneurship) education through competitions, events and a flexible, project-based curriculum aligned to education standards.
  • Showcase the innovative thinkers from among hundreds of thousands of young people who compete at various levels across the U.S. and from countries around the world.
