WELCOME!

Bring Innoventure Jr. to your classroom and open up the world of entrepreneurship to your elementary-age students. For more than a decade, the Innoventure suite of programs has introduced entrepreneurship to thousands of New Mexico students.

Our growing library of grade-appropriate activity books, animated videos and hands-on classroom projects will introduce your students to entrepreneurship, teamwork, communication and other key skills they need in the classroom and beyond.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Innoventure Jr. is all about entrepreneurship. It is designed to introduce young children to the skills and attitudes of an entrepreneurial mindset and to help them grow as problem-solvers, goal-setters and great team members.

Created by educators, all of our activities support New Mexico Common Core Standards and are built to fit into your curriculum for a one-day activity or a longer learning project. Each set of activities is age appropriate, but depending on each child, some help may be necessary from an adult.

GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK PROTOTYPE CONTEST

Celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week (Nov. 12-18, 2018) in your elementary classroom with Innoventure Jr.! Stretch those problem-solving and teamwork skills with our entrepreneurship classroom activity. Then turn your product design into a small paper or cardboard model following these guidelines. First-place teams in each grade level will have their model scanned and 3-D printed at Arrowhead Center at New Mexico State University. It’s a trophy that’s totally unique! Entries must be received by December 3, 2018. Contest is open to all elementary students in New Mexico. Questions? Contact Amanda Bradford at ambradfo@nmsu.edu.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

You can lead your students through the activity book specifically designed for their grade level. Innoventure Jr. materials are designed to be flexible and easy to adapt to your classroom.

Need some ideas for how to include our animated videos? We’ve designed an hour-long classroom project for any grade level and tested it out in local schools. It incorporates two of our animated videos and gets children working in teams and thinking of themselves as entrepreneurs.

All of our Innoventure Jr. activity books are available in PDF format, and they’re completely free! Just click on your grade-level below and enter your email address, grade level and number of students to request the entire collection for free. You can have your students download and complete the book on the computer or print out copies of the activity book and have the students write in their answers.

We do not receive any of the answers and there is no “grading” of these activities, but we do value your feedback! If you’re using Innoventure Jr. materials in your classroom, please let us know with a quick email to Innoventure Director Amanda Bradford at ambradfo@nmsu.edu or call her at 575-646-7148.
