The Children’s Innovation Project aims to engage young children in broad interdisciplinary learning, with a focus on creative exploration, expression and innovation with technology. The program uses technology as learning material for students to both explore the world around them and realize their potential to create. Integral to this mission are strong language and observational skills, which the program fosters in participating students. Through activities ranging from sketching the insides of an electrical toy to imagining the kind of circuits or motors in their appliances at home, children develop practices of persistence, precision, collaboration.
