mission & vision
No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and stimulate creativity and innovation among young people.
Creative problem-solving usually begins with defining the problem. This may lead to a simple non-creative solution, or to finding a "textbook solution". The creative problem-solving process may also lead to the discovery of prior art and of creative solutions by others.
If a creative solution has broad use, it may be referred to as an innovative solution or an innovation.
"All innovations begin as creative solutions, but not all creative solutions become innovations."
