Palouse Discovery Science Center
The Innovation Lab: A Portal to Possibilities project, is designed to increase youth awareness about creative and innovative ways of thinking through collaborative efforts to solve problems using critical thinking skills. Through this project, youth will be exposed to opportunities and experiences to create innovative projects and explore multiple solutions to solve problems. The program is committed to inspiring youth to create and think in innovative ways, fostering confidence not only in science achievements and problem solving, but also providing a sound and empowering platform to “think outside of the box” when solving real world potential problems and challenges. The project aims to focus on the entrepreneurial spirit when developing a solution to a presented problem. The project will be designed to introduce children to the creativity components outlined in the Creativity Garden program, inspiring children to create.
