How does innovation work at the high school level?
To investigate how innovation is included in education, we sought feedback from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
There is NO established framework for teaching innovation at the high school level!
(2 enthusiastic high school science teachers)
Our Framework for Innovation
1 year long class
Students apply science content to solve real problems
UCCS BI students serve as team leader/mentor/volunteers to high school students
High school students gain leadership experience
I.D.E.A.S ™ is innovation at the high school level
UCCS offers a
Bachelor of Innovation™ degree
they define Innovation as
The transformation of ideas into impact"
funding projects and grant writing
merging facets of multiple disciplines
What do students get out of I.D.E.A.S ™?
What do they really get?
solving a real problem
working with a variety of personalities
catering to clients
leading a team
writing to different audiences

Hashtag for Session:
My journey as a
mentor has provided
me with new learning
Our mentoring team was selected by UCCS to partner on the continued development of I.D.E.A.S ™ including:
UCCS funding our current partnership with the mentor team
They are aggressively seeking funding to pilot I.D.E.A.S ™ in the high school
Invited to participate with student innovation teams this Fall
Mountain View Elementary:
Angie's class FaceTiming
with Dr. Hatchell
Student asking one of the collaboratively composed questions
the simple definition of collaboration is
to work with another person or group to achieve or do something
the full definition of collaboration is
to work jointly with others or together especially in an intellectual endeavor
unwilling "collaborators" equal frustration for all
Problem-Based Learning "PBL"
Application-based use of science to solve real problems
Current research into PBL's and Innovation at the high school-level
Provides students the 'next step' in process
Addresses all parts of innovation (funding, teams, process, protection of ideas)
Meets 21st century skill needs in context of science
Rooted in standards for Science, English, and Math
Creating Innovators Mentoring Program
Left strong positive impression with BI Degree Faculty
Involvement of team at UCCS
UCCS pursued a partnership with our team
Taking Mentoring to a New Level
The Partnership with the UCCS BI Degree
Participation in summer semester 2 courses
- as teachers of innovation

UCCS asked to continue development of ideas at their expense
UCCS is aggressively seeking funding to develop a pilot program for innovation at the high school level
Results of Partnership to date
Collaboration with BI Degree students and faculty resulting in a framework for innovation
Benefits of Mentoring Program
Flexibility in the ASD20 program allowed time to develop ideas
The BI faculty was impressed with our ideas and goals and chose us to form a partnership
Current "Innovation" in High Schools
Partnership resulted in a development framework for innovation and STEM at the high school level
