Young Inventors Programme™

Description: Perfect for the budding entrepreneur!! In this 3-day multi-intelligences programme, children take on the role of young inventors as they find real solutions to real problems affecting children. Based on Design Thinking Principles originally from Stanford University, the participants of this workshop will be doing the following:

  1. Research into problems (Day 1)
  2. Creating prototypes of solutions (Day 2)
  3. Presenting and "selling" their solutions to classmates, instructors and parents (Day 3)

At every stage, children will be writing and journaling about their process leading up to their prototype. This ensures that they are actively thinking about how to problem solve and reflecting on how to improve their design as they get feedback from their peers and teachers.

The presentation on Day 3 also trains them to be confident speakers & writers, as they persuade others to use their products as a viable solution.
