“...the "Jobs of the Future" do not need scientists who have memorized the periodic table. In fact, business leaders say they are looking for creative, independent problem solvers in every field, not just math and science. Yet in most schools, STEM subjects are taught as a series of memorized procedures and vocabulary words, when they are taught at all”

Sylvia Libow Martinez
Author, Invent to Learn

“The fact is, that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed – it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”

Ken Robinson
Education Expert

"We forget that our responsibility isn’t solely to teach memorization or the mechanics of a task but to spark a curiosity that empowers students to learn on their own."

George Couros
Author of The Innovator's Mindset

"We need to move beyond the idea that an education is something that is provided for us and toward the idea that an education is something that we create for ourselves."
