The #1 question from teachers and coordinators is always "How do I implement the program?"
Our answer is, "What works best for you and your school?"
The program is designed to be very flexible and can be implemented in many different ways. We provide the lesson planning guide, student workbook, student journal, offer assemblies and support, and you decide what works best for your school district.
You can: have an entire school participate, or specific grades, or specific classes, or have an invention week or two, or run it as a special project, or as an after-school club, or for G&T students, or part of your class curriculum, or... what works best for you?
The lesson planning guide is offered as a tool for you to use, again, as it best fits your needs. You can use the entire guide, specific modules, or build something entirely specific for your students from it. Teachers, Staff, even Parents can help coordinate the program for your school district. Again, what works best for you?
Our goal is to reach as many students as possible so we don't constrain you with too many rules. What we do is encourage you to expose as many students as possible to the program, because not only is creative problem solving a great skill for students to learn, but inventing is fun!
We've seen it year after year, the many positive outcomes for students, and you'll see - students love the program (even if it requires a little home work).
How do you implement the program? What works best for you? But please feel free to contact us, we're here to help.
The two most important words about implementation are Flexibility & Opportunity.
The program is designed to be extremely flexible so that teachers and schools can fit the program to their needs and schedules. Making the program flexible, means that schools can provide this great opportunity to more students, because that's what's at the heart of the program - reaching as many students as possible with this positive, life-changing opportunity!
Your students can win college scholarships, be featured in the news, or on TV, or even patent their invention. Plus they become problem solvers, focused on finding solutions instead of getting stuck in the problems.
It's easy to get started, and the results can be amazing!
