The Office of Ingenuity

The Office of Ingenuity


We are the "Learning State."  

The Office of Ingenuity is an Educational Design Studio that facilitates student-centered, faculty-powered educational inquiry and action.

A Maker Space, a Think Tank, a Fabrication Center, a School, a Workshop, a Studio, or a Lab. Whatever you call it, it means the same thing, a place where great people and wonderful ideas converge to create something meaningful. We call our approach "3D Learning"  - Discover, Design, Deliver.

 

DISCOVER

"Discovery is seeing what everybody else has seen, and thinking what nobody else has thought."

Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Prize in Medicine, 1937

DESIGN

"Design is thinking made visible"

Saul Bass, American Designer

DELIVER

"I'm greedy for that satisfaction of doing something hard and knowing that, even though I was afraid I couldn't do it, that somehow I can deliver."

Alan Alda

Integration is Innovation


No More Silos of Learning

Integration is Innovation


No More Silos of Learning

 

Our belief drives us to…

1.  Unshackle Ingenuity with Integration. Schools created silos of learning (isolated departments/disciplines) but the brain doesn't work that way, nor does the world. = Curriculum Integration

 

2. Grapple with Global issues, Locally. Technology as a tool will support scalable solutions, but transformational learning is still the result of thought, action, and empathy. = Purposeful Education

 

3. Invest in "Innovators, NOT Innovations."  Educators with the right support offer the greatest ROI for social  impact and change. = Professional Development

 

4. Broker and Facilitate Revolutionary Collaboration between school communities, companies, and universities.  It's time for industries and universities to re-imagine their role in public schools through shared values, aka building the innovation pipeline. = Strategic Collaboration

Play with Your Food

We believe cooking is a great way to learn about the world and ourselves. Cooking empowers us to investigate  physics, chemistry, biology, history, culture, and the environment in an attempt to better understand the food we eat and ultimately our relationship to our world.
