Invention education builds from STEM knowledge adding iterative, design-based invention and prototyping processes along with entrepreneurship thinking. We fund invention education programs in the U.S. and in India and sub-Saharan Africa.
We support opportunities for children to experience invention education both in and out of school, with a focus on reaching students from low-income communities and groups under-represented in STEM. We work with key stakeholders - including educators and administrators - to build communities of practice that expand the reach and impact of invention education.
We nurture cultures of invention and entrepreneurship in institutions of higher education to prepare students to thrive in the future workforce. We provide support for student-led, invention-based projects that will become the high-impact, environmentally-responsible businesses of the future.
We support the development and delivery of invention education programs for primary, secondary and higher education settings in developing countries. These programs prepare students to become local change agents, inspired and equipped to invent products and build local businesses that address regional challenges.
