Bringing innovation and creative problem-solving and STEAM into classrooms everywhere.
The Roots + Wings INNOVATION HOUR™ is a customized, hands on, experiential curriculum that brings problem solving and independent thinking into classrooms. Using the tools of art and design, lessons directly connect and enhance required curriculum concepts. Experiences vary greatly from expressing voices visually in Language Arts through “Words Alive” in 1st grade, mapping angles artistically with the “Art of Angles” in 4th grade, or solidifying Science knowledge through “Human Body Systems Maps” in 5th grade.
Each experience has been created to weave into the National Standards, teaching 21st Century STEAM skills including innovation, collaboration, & critical thinking. Spanning from pre-k into middle school, the possibilities are endless!
Bring INNOVATION HOUR™ to your school!
Our INNOVATION HOUR™ programming is carefully crafted to fit the needs of each school we visit. We work with you to figure out the best way to schedule the experiences and discuss creative ways to secure funding to make sure it is FREE to all students involved.
Year-long School-wide Programs:
At least one visit with each classroom at the school of 1 to 1.5 hours of contact time with each visit.
Single Day Programs:
One-time visit with one classroom of students.
We are always open to thinking outside the box! Let us know what you are thinking and we can craft a proposal.
