Children are the future. Their ideas and their actions will shape the world as we know it, and it is our duty to their generation to guide them in their journey of discovery and innovation.
IDE Academy envisions a day when EVERY child in Singapore has the chance to follow their natural curiosity, invent creative solutions to problems, and be inspired to achieve their highest level of personal accomplishment. We will support the children as they grow into capable and productive members of society who can affect change. We believe that these efforts to encourage the next generation of thinkers and inventors will ensure a brighter future for Singapore.
Solving real-world problems will require agile thinkers with diverse perspectives and life experiences, and an ability to identify and acquire the new, yet unknown knowledge needed to operate and create tomorrow’s technologies and industries. At the same time, our educational system risks growing increasingly out of step with the needs of life and work in the 21st century.
Invention Education offers a powerful approach to bridge this gap. The Singapore Open Nationals is a celebration of the achievements of the emerging young inventors’ journey. Let us support and celebrate with them.
