Inventionland Institute provides professional development, technical/equipment solutions, training and consulting to integrate our course into your environment.


Our courseware, teacher resources and learning kits provide a “pull through” discovery experience. We don’t “push” the skills or subjects.

Conditions “before” Innovation

We will help students, teachers, principals and superintendents set up for success by implementing these critical conditions in your school.



First and foremost, we need support and commitment from our leaders to allow innovation to take place. It could be funding, an allocation of time and/or resources, or culture. In school districts, school buildings, classrooms or at home, there must be leadership to set things into motion.


An immersive environment will enable a feeling of absorption, freedom and concentration which allows our minds to unlock their full potential. The creative space is open and flexible with no physical barriers.

3Discovery process

Our 9 Step Method is a building block framework that incrementally takes a person through discovery and, ultimately, learning individually and in a team.


Working in teams and through collaborative experiences with teachers and other students, we connect on multiple levels and leverage ideas and skills from one another. This is the power in numbers and the recognition that diversity in thought and practice unleashes our true potential as innovators.


We discover things along our journey. With passion and commitment, we believe people should be prepared to experience failure with an understanding that there is growth from it. Never give up on your ideas. Fuel your creative self with determination and passion.
