Statement

“We are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. Developments in previously disjointed fields, such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, robotics, IoT, 3D Printing, genetics, and biotechnology are all building on and amplifying one another.

Concurrent to this technological revolution is a set of broader socio-economic, geopolitical and demographic developments with nearly equivalent impact to the technological factors. We also find that on average respondents expect that the impact for nearly all drivers will occur within the next 5 years, highlighting the urgency for adaptive action today”.

Our Vision

We help to extend knowledge life-cycles to adapt new and unknown technologies and business model trends for K to 12 students and teachers

We always make our space (on premises or at your location) where k-12 students can explore and create science, technology, engineering and math with fun, hands-on activities and always with a focus on learning. Our labs provide inquiry-based workshops where kids use their own natural curiosity to make discoveries about the world around them.
