Welcome to InnoWorks!

The school year 2015-2016 marks the 13th year of InnoWorks. We have successfully conducted over 100 Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEM2) summer workshops for more than 2,400 students and benefited from the contributions of over 1,000 volunteers.

InnoWorks currently have more than a dozen university chapters and we anticipate ell over 500 InnoWorkers (InnoWorks students) will benefit from our 2015-2016 workshops.

If you are interested in starting a new chapter, volunteering or have questions or comments, please contact Maria Chang, InnoWorks Chief Operating Officer at coo@innoworks.org.

The entire InnoWorks family welcome new chapters at University of California at Berkeley, University of Texas at Austin and Northwestern University. We wish them all the best on their wonderful journeys to serve their communities.

InnoWorks is a winner of the 2007 BRICK Awards

MIT Tech News: Spotlight on service

"... A lack of scientists and engineers can stunt economic growth in both developed and developing countries. The InnoBox team attributes students’ lack of interest in science to deficiencies in science education — specifically, inadequate teaching materials in primary schools. They plan to address the problem with inexpensive and portable kits for teaching science and engineering, called “InnoBoxes” and developed in conjunction with Cambridge-based United InnoWorks Academy. Using their $15,000 worth of seed funding (a $10,000 IDEAS award and a $5,000 Community Choice award), the group will partner with a middle school in South Africa to bring the kits to more than 300 students."

... our plan is to impact a lot more youths, in rural areas all over the world,...
