How Invention Education Prepares Students for the Future

Using Invention Education to Help Today's Students Become Tomorrow's Innovators

 

From the earliest agrarian civilizations that cultivated large fields to support centralized populations, to today’s modern societies that benefit from advancements in medicine, manufacturing and technology, our history is one defined by continuous improvement.

While this continuous innovation continues to improve the standard of living for people all across the world, today we continue to face serious global challenges we must not ignore, including climate change, loss of biodiversity and the rapid depletion of natural resources, to name a few.

The world needs big ideas, and at the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), we believe the best way to prepare today’s children for our increasingly complex future is to help them both build confidence and embrace their natural creativity through invention education.

This paper explores what invention education is, and how NIHF’s unique approach to this pedagogy helps prepare children for the future. Highlights include:

  • An answer to the age-old question, “Can You Teach Creativity?”
  • Why all students who participate in NIHF’s education programming develop an Innovation Mindset™
  • How invention education creates a safe environment where children are free to dream and create
