Emerging Innovators is an after-school research program that focuses on equipping students with the knowledge and skills needed to develop and design Human-Centric Solutions and write their "ideal" conceptual solutions in the form of a university level Research Article. Students demonstrate their skills in "Whole System Design Thinking" and through their solutions and research article are able to express the breadth and depth of their knowledge.
Here are couple of student testimonials:
The program really changed my perspectives on various aspects of my life. After attending, I am able to question the functions of every system. I rethink every design in our society and have the confidence to develop a solution for problems posed in my community. This program was truly inspirational and opened my eyes to a new view of the world. - Nitya, Student 11th Grade
The Emerging Innovators Program helped me become more communicable and understanding of my surroundings, and therefore enabled me to write and share my opinions about problems I see in my environment. Most importantly, this program explained how beneficial and important nature is to mankind, more than my schools ever did. Consequently, I became interested in the field of biomimicry, and now hope to someday incorporate it in my professional development. I enjoyed learning about different, nature inspired innovations, which peaked my interest in industrial design. Overall, I believe this program has helped me become a better, more conscious individual to the world I live in. - Ankit, Student 12th Grade
