Program That Fuels Future Innovators

Through the Young Inventors’ Program (YIP) at the University of New Hampshire, Leitzel Center, teachers can set their students on a course to shape an innovative future. The program’s free resources help teachers guide students through the invention process to solve problems while applying STEM learning and gaining 21st century skills. YIP materials are adaptable to all learning environments—in school, out of school, at home. They have been designed to be easy to implement, flexible enough to meet diverse student needs, applicable to a broad range of disciplines—and most important, accessible to anyone. Educators and group leaders with and without STEM expertise can use the modules to introduce engaging activities and teachable units at all K–12 levels. YIP provides two tracks for learning: Invention & Design and Chain Reaction Machines, allowing educators and students to choose the path that most inspires them. The program offers a project-based learning experience that builds inquiry skills. It includes a free curriculum with lesson plan recommendations for in-person classroom teaching, as well as virtual synchronous and asynchronous learning models. In addition, the program provides professional development and networking opportunities, including engaging local, regional, and national events.
