The Innovation Institute

The Innovation Institute is inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers among young people, ages 5-17. Whether homeschooled or day-schooled, young people learn alongside our team of professional research scientists and engineers. These passionate instructors serve as learning facilitators, role models, and informal mentors. Their training and career trajectories engage student curiosity and deepen student commitment to learning. 

Instructors balance hands-on science lab experiments and engineering design challenges with Harkness-model, round-table discussion. They use an inquiry-based approach across these formats to empower students to lead their own learning. Courses range from neuroscience and physical chemistry to molecular biology and computer science. Class size is capped at ten students.

A culture of science and engineering permeates all activities and interactions at the Innovation Institute. The Innovation Institute’s four well-equipped labs reflect and reinforce this culture. They also signify the emphasis on experiential learning and our confidence in the abilities of young people to undertake serious learning joyfully.
