Calling the
Next Generation
of Innovators

Can you imagine how different your life would be if you were empowered to follow your own interests, your own intuition, and imagination at a very young age?

At Young Innovators Oviedo we believe all children are wired with the critical skills and mindsets that will make them successful in the future.

Our proprietary curriculum gets children and adults passionate about learning turning classrooms into innovation parties.

Featured Class Projects

Baby Product

Children conduct observations in the infant room. After gathering information, they work in small groups to ideate, create a prototype, and test it.

Emergency Supplies to Remote Areas

The children brainstorm a way to deliver food and supplies to a remote area. Children will learn about geography, physics and gravity by researching, ideating, prototyping and creating different solutions.

Wildlife Crossing

The children learn about wildlife and how animals have adapted to live around human populations. They will determine how and what to build for animals to cross safely from one side of the street to the other.

Archaeological Tool

Children will encounter an interesting story about an old artifact buried in the school backyard. The challenge is to dig it out without breaking it. Children will use their fine motor skills and learn some engineering tricks to create the perfect tool to dig out the hidden artifact.
