Project Invent is for disruptive educators who are ready to make learning about more than just standards and tests. Join our 2019-2020 cohort to lead school and community change.
WHAT TO EXPECT
As a Project Invent mentor, you receive training & support to lead your students to develop a working solution to a real problem in their community. Along the way, you will become a design thinking expert and project-based learning guru. 85% of our educators rated Project Invent in the top 5% of all professional development experiences they’ve been a part of. We take that high praise very seriously. A mentor’s experience involves:
a week of training
monthly support calls
assistance with finding a community partner
We help you and your students succeed in going from idea to working product. You end the year with a powerful proof point of student-centered learning and strong expertise in design thinking, making, and project management.
We train you.
We host summer trainings for you to learn the ins and outs of design thinking, engineering, and entrepreneurship for social impact so you know what to do in any invention situation.
We support you.
Invention is a messy process. Our advisors from Stanford d.school, MIT, and more host monthly support calls and provide on-demand advising year-round to help you be the best mentor you can be.
We connect you.
We help pair each team with a community partner to work with throughout the year, going beyond a single interview and leading to innovations that truly matter.
we award you.
In May, teams present their inventions to top investors and tech executives. This year, we’re hosting at Stanford University with thousands in funding from companies like Google and more.
