What if you could build a better world? 
The Jacobs Institute for Innovation in Education at the University of San Diego is calling for middle- and high-school educators to join us in our effort to make a local and global impact.

Through the Jacobs Teen Innovation Challenge in fall 2020 and spring 2021, educators and teenagers will develop an innovator’s mindset and the skills to create solutions to local or global problems.

There is no cost to participate, and we will provide ongoing professional development support for teachers before and during the event.

Hosted by The Jacobs Institute for Innovation in Education at the University of San Diego, this global competition helps students develop an innovator’s mindset and skills that cut across STEAM-sector jobs by using design thinking to engage in social good innovation. Using Pactful, students learn essential skills such as empathy, critical thinking, community engagement, design, prototyping, and storytelling that benefit them in future-focused careers. Pactful and this challenge are sponsored through the generosity of Dr. Irwin and Mrs. Joan Jacobs.

We are asking interested teachers to sign up by November 20
