The Inventors
Start date: 01 Oct 2012,

‘To enthuse children for technology and innovation and thus to create a sustainable society’ are the goals of the Inventors Foundation. We create adventures in which children participate and seek solutions using technology in an innovative way. They come up with their own inventions and present them on a digital network. They compete with other international teams thus generating a community of young inventors. The network is a tool for teachers to meet and to inform each other. The network also involves friends and family.The projects have proven themselves in the last years. The organization intends to internationalize the method for Europe to benefit. We will fill the gaps, translate the materials currently used and expand distribution. Furthermore there are partners in four countries that will actively participate in the project development. We generate an on-going educational process starting in pre-school continuing to elementary school, in which children experience that it’s fun to be creative and innovative. In secondary school youth will be offered adventurous challenges of professional companies. This method is used in the far-famed project known as ‘Braintrigger’.Teachers of a Belgian technical school will introduce the project to elementary schools. After all it’s the technical universities who are the first to benefit from a rising number of pupils. With this partner we finalize the on-going educational process, starting at pre-school, progressing through primary and secondary school up to professional education. We set the conditions for an entrepreneurial and innovative Europe. To summarize we:1. Spread a successful method over Europe2. Applying digital opportunities thus promoting the use of ICT in education3. Effectuate the progressing process throughout different stages of education starting at pre-school up to higher education. The goals are to promote creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship with children and youth in Europe.
