Chiyoda Young Innovators’ Academy

The goal of the two-week Chiyoda Young Innovators’ Academy is to interest students entering 7th, 8th and 9th grade in topics of engineering, programming and inventions in an effort to cultivate their STEM skills.

Students will experience hands-on activities; design, build, and innovate ideas for inventions; and participate in the Summer Young Inventors’ Showcase hosted by the Inventors Association of America-Houston Chapter.

During the Academy, students participated in an array of design challenges, building parachutes and bottle rockets and reverse engineering common objects, like coffee mugs. They also got involved in programming to create and develop games and learned to use microcontrollers that allowed them to make a robotic finger move.
