The workshop was so fun and enlightening! It was great to see how simple changes (like using the "yes, and" framework) can do so much to boost creativity within teams. I'll be implementing learnings from the session right away.

I didn't want it to end; more time more fun!
The outcome of the How To Be An Inventor course is a soft prototype. Some of the student creations that I saw were very interesting and the process of ideation to product development exposed the students into the world of creative thinking and building as a lifelong skill as opposed to a compartmentalized activity in a classroom to be done and forgotten. My son, who was a part of the pilot workshop has pitched a dozen product ideas to me in the past 6 months since he completed the above workshop and most of them are quite sensible if I can say so myself. More importantly, he took one of these ideas, built a hard prototype, and then convinced a friend to purchase it!
My teachers so appreciated the research-based professional development on Creativity Fundamentals. They were instantly engaged in an interactive, hands-on learning experience, and they left with lots of activities and high leverage instructional strategies to use with their students. I highly recommend this training for all teachers!
