Your job as teacher gets a whole lot easier when your students are inspired.
Beakerhead can help!
Most Beakerhead programs are related to what you may know as “design thinking” – a process for identifying problems, generating a prolific realm of possible solutions, testing ad experimenting with them, and building things by hand where possible. Others are designed to simply inspire – that’s important too. Beakerhead aims to increase the affinity for science and art for all students.
How-to one-sheets and curriculum links are available for all programs.
Be the first to receive resources, know about programs, registrations and other opportunities!

INGENUITY CHALLENGE, BOLT OF INGENUITY

But first, inspire your students on the design-thinking process with a free live webinar that will get you launched into the Ingenuity Challenge!
