Innoventure Jr.

Welcome to Innoventure Jr.!

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 concepts of the exchange of money for products and services and to get them to recognize they each have skills and abilities that provide value to others and show them that they can take part in creating their own job – and jobs for others.

Created by educators, many of our activities are aligned with New Mexico Common Core Standards and 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.

Bring Innoventure Jr. Day to Your School

Students all over New Mexico have a chance to see their ideas in the palms of their hands with Innoventure Jr.! Thanks to generous support from the Daniels Fund (link to Daniels page), we offer a fun, free outreach program to schools across New Mexico. Students learn all about entrepreneurship, teamwork, brainstorming and problem-solving in a hands-on activity that encourages them to invent their own product idea.
