School of Invention
Inspiring children and youth to generate a passion for creative thinking, invention and innovation.
There is a misconception that invention is only the realm of the white haired scientist or laboratory hermits. In fact throughout history there were various instances when children and young people created inventions. One which comes to mind is Philo T. Farnsworth who actually invented electronic television when he was 14 years old.
Over the last couple of years Creolabs has been developing a ‘School of Invention’ for children. The idea behind the school lies in the fact that children have an innate ability to think and act in a creative manner and that this creative power can be channeled and focused to create something new. This is why the school will put a lot of emphasis on fostering the children’s creative capital.
The main purpose of the school is to inspire children to generate a passion for invention. It will give them the necessary skills to transform their imagination into something concrete that they can see and feel. This is done through courses and hands-on workshops in creative thinking, personal communications, personal development, science & technology, media production and ICT.
