Students from more than 50 primary schools have benefitted from the Product Innovation Workshops conducted by ODMsg and PS Innovations Pte Ltd. The 3 hour course was conducted at the Science Centre Singapore.
“Innovation is not the product of logical thought, although the result is tied to logical structure.”- Albert Einstein
People tend to think that only creative people can come up with ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas but that is not true. Innovation can be ‘manufactured’ through a logical process. A simple innovation process coupled with tools can aid a primary-schooler to be innovative.
The workshops touched on a simple 4-step innovation process and tools to use in each step. Discussions and hands-on activities such as touching prototyping materials and building their own Electronic Water Gun encouraged the students to learn by experience.
ODM will continue to grow this very important initiative to develop young entrepreneurial talent, to roll out classes for different demographic groups, and to foster intellectual property development.
