Jacobs Teen Innovation Challenge Kickoff

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our kickoff of the Jacobs Teen Innovation Challenge last week with the amazing Dr. Jennifer Williams!

If you were unable to join us live, the recording and slides are available now and are also linked on our website.

A few things:

  • Please join our growing Pactful Community (linked at the top of our public site and within the Pactful app) to engage with other educators and our team.

  • If you are new to Pactful, please complete the teacher sign-up form to get an account and access to the app.

  • Review the Teacher’s Guide which is also available in the Innovator’s Guide under Resources in the Pactful app.

  • We are sharing Dr. Jennifer Williams’ Teach Boldly Toolkit with everyone.

  • If you are interested in any of the books we discussed today, you can get them at a discounted rate from our partner Barnes & Noble by completing the form Mary Meier mentioned.

  • Mark your calendars for the next webinar on January 14th at 4 PM PT (7 PM ET). We will introduce the Understand phase and be joined by special guest speaker Connie Liu, Founder and Executive Director at Project Invent! If you signed up for the challenge, you should have received a calendar invite with the Zoom information from @Alina_Mitchell.

As promised, the two winners of our randomized drawing are Eric Fischer and Stefanie Nguyen, both of whom will receive signed copies of Dr. Williams’ book!

And finally, it’s not too late to ask a colleague to join the challenge. Our goal is to reach as many interested educators and impact as many teenagers as possible and we cannot do this without help from our amazing community.
