We bring together the most creative youth and the most analytical ones, especially those residing in less served areas, to introduce them to problem solving at the intersection of design, science, technology and business.


There is a quiet storm brewing at this intersection.  Persons who can innovate in this space are extremely valuable, highly sought-after and considering the complexity of today’s problems will remain in great demand for a long time.



We create immersive hands-on experiences that places a high value on developing a sense of belonging in the innovation community. Once students develop a desire to be a part (will) they will seek the skills to participate. Skill follows will.



Our students are constantly challenged to take one step towards making their mark. They learn that doing, failing & iterating not infinite planning & talking is the pathway to becoming makers and doers that make things happen.
