On Thursday, December 9, 2010 we return to our youth entrepreneurship theme with a presentation on Innovation Engineering: Knowledge, tools and inspiration to become an innovator and entrepreneur. Our presenter will be Renee Kelly, Co-Director of Programs, Operations and Outreach, at the Foster Center for Student Innovation at the University of Maine. Tune in to learn about the work that is incubating our next generation of entrepreneurs.

In order to be future leaders, students need to know how to innovate. They need to know how create unique ideas, communicate them effectively and implement them, whether they want to start their own business or work in an established organization. The Foster Center for Student Innovation at the University of Maine has developed an academic minor for students from all majors to learn a variety of tools and methods for a systematic approach to innovation. The Foster Center has begun outreach to adapt this program to younger students including a summer camp for youths from grades 3-8, workshops for high school students, after school programs and partnerships with K-12 schools to integrate concepts into their curriculum.

No pre-registration is required and there is no fee to participate. About 10 minutes prior to the start time simply go the Adobe Connect Pro meeting room at You will be presented with a login screen that has an "Enter as Guest" option.
