Founded in 2015, igniteSTEM is a Princeton University-based social entrepreneurship non-profit working to disrupt education.
Through the power of design thinking and project-based education, our mission is to challenge the status quo of how we craft the future problem solvers of tomorrow.
Our initiatives include events for educators and students, our newsletter, our Intro to Ideation workbook, and more.
We bring educators together through our signature (yet free) conference series for keynotes, workshops, and grants to inspire the next innovation in teaching.
Design Thinking Challenges
We invite high schoolers from across the nation to learn and apply the principles of design thinking in real-world challenges, disrupting barriers to education.
We publish a monthly newsletter for educators with design thinking resources, notices of future events, interviews with experts, grant applications, and more!
