EDISON UNIVERSE Mentoring

The scienceFIST Foundation is a Chicago non-profit organization dedicated to bringing at risk students into the world of science through after school STEM mentoring programs. This year, scienceFIST has created a product design program based on the Edison Awards.

Innovation Learning Exchange

Leaders from the Edison Award Innovation Community share their experience, their innovation process and perhaps even product with about 50 at risk middle school students. The joint club presentation is a partnership between our non-profit Edison Universe and The ScienceFIST Foundation. The presenter provides background for the students to review on a Tuesday and conduct a "show and tell" style presentation on a Thursday. The students are exceptionally curious and inventive young people who are looking for encouragement of invention and discovery!

Innovation Mentors

Edison Award finalists mentor to groups of 4-5 scienceFIST middle school students. As students begin working on product designs in small groups, The mentor communicates with the students on a weekly basis through email, video blogs, Skype or in person to discuss their ideas and encourage them on their journey of invention and discovery. This great opportunity has a high impact on the education of a few exceptionally curious and inventive young people. The mentors spend about 30 minutes a week for ten weeks plus any independent research for student questions.

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
