Curiosity Confidence Creativity
What's the Big Idea?
Many students have heard of Twitter but have never met an app developer. Big Idea Week is an "inspiration exchange" between students and business leaders—two groups that don't spend nearly enough time together. The program encourages students to see the world through the eyes of an entrepreneur—as problem solvers, risk takers and innovators—and builds curiosity, confidence and creativity by giving students the tools to bring their own ideas to life.
With a focus on science, math, engineering and technology (STEM) as well as design, the program also builds essential critical thinking and presentation skills, and exposes students to new concepts and vocabulary. Going far beyond a typical “career day,” Big Idea Week leaves a lasting, positive impact on students, teachers and school culture.
