Using the idea of the “innovator mindset,” students will also explore the personal characteristics that innovators have and visit exhibits about local inventions in Pittsburgh: A Tradition of Innovation. The program culminates with a rapid prototyping activity inspired by the innovations and inventions featured in the museum.
