“Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.” – William Pollard
It is important for us to continue to innovate and have the ability to see change as an opportunity, and not as a threat. Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement.
We need to learn to initiate change and learn how to manage the change.
Our guidance emphasizes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and also shows how to introduce “STEM Plus – advanced topics” at school, while encouraging curiosity and creativity, which is bound to produce many inventors and innovators.
While we are moving in the path of invention and innovation, we need to be able to do it in a way that our actions do not harm humanity and our environment.
Adopt our Innovation Guidance and become a Leader in Environmental Sustainability! Let your school be empowered and create many responsible innovators!

“Encouraging our next generation to responsibly innovate”
Innovation and Environmental Sustainability should not be considered separately. Most of the issues we are seeing today with us not knowing how to use our raw materials and how to dispose of an item properly- like plastics, are because when people created products they did not consider these things. But now we know from our mistakes and from the issues we are currently facing today, that the right way is for us to think about environmental sustainability from the beginning of creating any product or solution.
