Innovation and Incubation Certificate Program : Bright Ideas
Redefining institutional boundaries, while still participating in authoritative curricula is key to understanding the mind-set of this fully digital generation. As an advocate of disruptive innovation, ISSTA is proud to offer an Innovation and Incubation Program called Bright Ideas, whereby students can become fully vested in the preparation of technology laboratories, and intellectual property applications for methods and apparatus'. Students can design graphics worthy of trademarking, facilitate the incubation of new medical technologies, or advance existing products and services in the open market. This extra-curricular program provides research, state-of-the-art tools, amd faculty whose experience range in both industry and academia. The objective of a program as such is not simply to generate a Certificate of Measure in Innovation and Incubation but to fully prepare student entrepreneurs and innovators to capitalize on various inventions, and modifications of inventions of products or services in the marketplace. By and through a proprietary shared agreement, ISSTA helps to fund these student projects with the expectation that they will yield success in the child's future, as well as foster growth for ISSTA's reputation and credibility in research for the future. This collaborative experience is unlike any other in the United States.
