The National Youth Invention and Entrepreneurship Program Organizers Summit
2017 Dates & Location: Tentatively planned for September 7-10, 2017 at The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, MI
The annual National Youth Invention and Entrepreneurship Program Organizers Summit brings together youth invention, innovation and entrepreneurship affiliate and partner program organizers. The goal is to build bridges between our programs, share best practices, brainstorm national issues, and otherwise support each other in our efforts to formalize invention and entrepreneurship education in the U.S. K-12 landscape. In particular, the goals of the Summit are:
- To expand The STEMIE Coalition’s knowledge of its present affiliate base’s needs in order to grow current invention education programs on a curve to our 10-million student goal
- To share best practices and programmatic elements among current and potential affiliates so that all interests in invention education will focus on optimizing invention education
- To build strong pathways to existing science, engineering design, maker, creative, and entrepreneurship movements
- To provide guidance to emerging invention and entrepreneurship organizations and help to accelerate their launches
- To map a collective plan for interlinking STEM+Invention+Entrepreneurship efforts
- To boost our creativity and energy by working together IN PERSON!
