Kids of all ages are invited to join us for our Young Innovators Workshop on January 4th and 5th, 2017 – part of Peds2040 in Miami, FL. This hands-on, interactive workshop will introduce kids to innovation and the steps it takes to turn an idea into a prototype. Kids will share their own ideas, based on their personal experiences in the healthcare world, and will form teams to work on a few of these ideas during the workshop. Teams will work together to define their pain point, create a solution, build a “prototype” of that solution, and present their solution to their peers. Kids will be encouraged to work on all aspects of the project with mentors, designers and programmers to help them bring their ideas to life.
If your child is passionate about solving problems and overcoming obstacles they encounter during their (or someone they know) medical journey, this is the perfect workshop for him/her.
Applications must be in by December 20th, 2016 (videos by December 24th)
