Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship
This video lesson introduces students to the worlds of engineering innovation and entrepreneurship. It seeks to encourage students to see the world with a fresh perspective for innovation through interactive classroom brainstorming activities and real life stories. Students will build self-efficacy in their own entrepreneurial potential by developing their perspective for innovation, developing a prototype solution for a problem they have recognized, and delivering an elevator pitch. The video will familiarize students with all the steps in the innovation process: from conception to launch. By the end of this lesson, students will be prepared for an optional long-term innovation project (see below). There are no formal prerequisites for this video; any high school or advanced middle school student can participate in and benefit from this video’s learning activities. The video and learning activities can be completed in one 55-minute class period. Students can interact with MIT BLOSSOMS

Techbridge Activity: Water Filter
In this activity, designed by Techbridge (www.techbridgegirls.org) to be used with middle school youth in informal settings, youth learn about the importance of having clean water. They apply the engineering design process to design, build, and construct a water filter that will remove all the contaminants from a bucket of dirty water.
