Innovation Circuit Series

Innovation Circuit Series


Innovation Circuits, delivered by industry experts and influencers, are immersive topically linked sessions that give students an opportunity to gain expertise, innovate, and contribute meaningfully. Innovation Circuits trainings may be one-off, hour long conversations, or they may be a series of trainings over the course of the school year. These sessions help students gain expertise in innovation mindset, skills, and practices.
