Creative Problem Solving and Inventing: A Proven Approach for STEM Education
We are sharing what we have learned with greater numbers of educators and administrators across the U.S. and forming a community of support. Each year we hold summer professional development sessions over the course of three days, held online or in-person.
Why participate with us?
The Lemelson-MIT Program has helped train over 160 educators who reached over 4,000 students last year through invention education trainings. Case studies and research publications offer evidence that our approach to invention education helps students develop confidence in their ability to engage in STEM and pursue STEM college and career pathways, even if they have had little exposure in the past to STEM. Our evidence-based model also transforms educators’ approach to teaching and facilitating student learning, and helps schools and districts make connections to STEM professionals in their communities and other community supporters.
