Ten80 is inspiring students to become the next generation of innovators. The STEM Innovators-in-Training Experience is a 1-day educational experience including interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities and dynamic speakers to engage high school students in the real process of innovation. This event brings STEM to life on a massive scale as students participate in workshops and learn more about the four critical aspects of innovation: the engineering process, enterprise process, content & skills, and leadership.
Hands-on, minds-on project-based STEM activities equip students with the mental tools needed to face the complex, fast-changing nature of today’s information-based economy.
Our primary goal is to inspire all students to engage in STEM learning because science and technology is everywhere and shapes everyday experiences. STEM is not just for future engineers and technicians, it is an opportunity to help each individual cultivate the confidence that comes from knowing how to effectively answer the hard questions, skillfully tackle challenges and innovate toward a sustainable and prosperous future. We provide content and support that channels inspiration into real academic and emotional success and exposes students to the endless possibilities of a STEM education.
Ten80 Education events are quickly becoming a destination point for students of all cultures, genders and socio-economic backgrounds accommodating a variety of skill levels and interests.
Addressing different concepts and skills through team-oriented challenges Ten80 Education allows students to participate in real world scenarios, assume STEM professional roles, and engage in critical thinking to create innovative solutions. Interdisciplinary approaches encourage students to use multiple disciplines to solve problems with an emphasis on the application of knowledge to real-life situations that are essential for the future of STEM education. Ten80 is sending a powerful message to all students that STEM fields are important and accessible to all.
