Every business starts with an idea, but to be successful you need more than just a good idea.
Getting kids to connect to, and to see value in their ideas also is a key ingredient in teaching STEM, and one of the biggest challenges.
This is why CreositySpace created the Book of Ideas. Similar to a real inventor’s notebook, the Book of Ideas was designed to encourage kids to write down or draw their own ideas and inventions. The Cool Kid IP Challenge is the next step in familiarizing kids with the engineering design process and taking a concept from idea to a product or business.
The Cool Kid IP Challenge blends key elements of a business plan competition and Invention Convention—taking the holistic approach from idea conception to commercialization. Over the 12 week challenge students work in teams to:
The six core lesson topics highlighting the Engineering Design Process actively incorporate key elements of the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, culminating in a Live Pitch event.
