Day of Innovation Highlights

Wow! What a great event. Yesterday, we co-hosted a Day of Innovation with Inventionland Institute and Reynoldsburg City Schools. Visitors from across the state joined us to see Reynoldsburg’s new – and FABULOUS -Inventionland Innovation Lab at Hannah Ashton Middle School.

Hannah Ashton Middle School, Reynoldsburg, OH

What happens at a Day of Innovation?

  • We explored how this new space is being used to authentically engage middle schoolers in problem based learning;
  • We practiced design challenges and brainstormed how educators can use them in their schools to increase engagement and deepen learning; and
  • We discovered how Inventionland’s Innovation Course can be a great resource for teachers to build 21st century skills, especially those assessed through the OhioMeansJobs Readiness Seal.

What did participants say?

  • “I am using these activities to help me refresh PD I do for afterschool and summer learning professionals.”
  • “Our Board is very interested in creating a makerspace in our district. The HAMS Innovation Lab gives me tons of ideas for how we can re-think learning environments.”
  • “Our school is really beginning to focus on opportunities for students to earn their OhioMeansJobs Readiness Seal, the Inventionland Innovation Course looks like it might be a great resource to support this effort. “
