Creativity is key

Innovation is the focal point for success in business and education today. We help people access and express their creative ideas, and help teams to be more effective at innovating solutions to problems. We also help educators teach more effectively with less effort by empowering creativity and innovation in the classroom.

 

We lead the fields of inventing to energize learning and kinetic ideation and innovation. We provide highly active workshops in innovation and inventive learning; traveling exhibits for museums in creativity and invention; and inventing curriculum and learning activities.

 

If you want to succeed in today’s creative era, give us a shout.

Innovative Teaching and Learning

We launched a Facebook page to encourage the exchange of ideas on Innovative Teaching and Learning. www.facebook.com/groups/ 855894851101243/ Research and experience consistently show that learners stay engaged, exhibit more curiosity, and learn more effectively when they are addressing challenges that they meet with kinetic action. In spite of what we believe to be overwhelming evidence of the success of this 21st century approach to learning, it is not widely followed.

New Blog

As a museum director and scientist I have enjoyed adventures around the world. Now, I'm recounting them in short stories on a new blog: Whisper Dish Adventures. http://whisperdishadventures. blogspot.com/

Exhibit on Ocean Acidification

Ocean acidification is a consequence of climate change and threatens to be the most dangerous impact. To help people understand what it is and how it impacts not only the ocean but themselves as well, we are creating a traveling exhibit. http://oceanacidexhibit.com/
