Curriculum, Environments, Experiences
Each of our programs combines novel high-speed curriculum with hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences in a professional studio environment. Each includes a customized combination of in-studio and out-of-studio components that engage, equip and empower participants to rapidly develop promising innovations adressing real-world problems. The philosophy, methods and timeframes are modelled after the famed Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, IDEO, the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford, as well as other creative places.
By emphasizing rapid failure as the quickest path to individual and collective success, our programs encourage partcipants to identify, imagine, design, execute, fail and repeat. In doing so they gain the creative confidence essential for design thinking, innovation, entrepreneurship and servant leadership. The power of this eSTEAM education and training model has been recognized by parents, teachers, patent attorneys, economic developers, military personnel and industry partners.
