This workshop uses exciting interactive group activities and the principles of Engineering to teach young people about the importance of 'creative thinking' and 'problem solving' to be successful in life. Using the innovative ‘K.O.O.L Model™’ created by SAY, the workshop also aims to inspire young people to see that Engineering, or indeed any career or goal, is a viable and real aspiration that can be achieved if the available opportunities that surround us are utilised. 'Innov8 2 Elev8' can be delivered as a 4 - 5 week 'extended programme'. The workshop covers: 

 

  • The importance of 'Creative Thinking' and 'Problem Solving' to be successful

  • Stimulating interactive exercises that challenge young people to think creatively 

  • The importance of 'aspirations' and effective 'Goal Setting' techniques to achieve them 

  • Team work, organisational and planning skills

  • Positive attitude, proactiveness and determination to persevere through set-backs
