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!
My Team
(2 enthusiastic high school science teachers)
Our Framework for Innovation
Proposed
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"
Experience in:
applying science
team work
leadership
funding projects and grant writing
technical writing
merging facets of multiple disciplines
What do students get out of I.D.E.A.S ™?
What do they really get?
Experience
solving a real problem
Experience
working with a variety of personalities
Experience
funding start-ups
Experience
catering to clients
Experience
networking
Experience
leading a team
Experience
writing to different audiences
Experience
communicating professionally

The
Experience
of failure
and
The
Experience
of accomplishment

how?
when?
My journey as a
mentor has provided
me with new learning
opportunities.
Fall 2014
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:
Leni Schlieper
Collaboration
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
alliance
teamwork
partnership
relationship
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

I.D.E.A.S ™
All sciences

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
Mentoring:
- as teachers of innovation
- as coaches for the innovation teams
- as clients in the innovation teams class

Continuation of Partnership
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
