Creativity is key

Innovation is the focal point for success in business and education today. We help people access and express their creative ideas, and help teams to be more effective at innovating solutions to problems. We also help educators teach more effectively with less effort by empowering creativity and innovation in the classroom.


We lead the fields of inventing to energize learning and kinetic ideation and innovation. We provide highly active workshops in innovation and inventive learning; traveling exhibits for museums in creativity and invention; and inventing curriculum and learning activities.


If you want to succeed in today’s creative era, give us a shout.

Professional Development

We provide professional development workshops for science teachers and science center staff. The training is hands-on, fast-paced, and fun. Participants learn how to lead students making a dozen or more models that propel their understanding of science and covering NGSS topics.
