Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2014 -- Creative and Clever, a website highlighting creative and clever people from around the globe, will feature an AMG Services-backed high school invention program. AMG Services is committed to inspire the next generation of inventors by supporting a new high school Junior Varsity Invent Team (JVIT) initiative; a program designed to cultivate inventive curiosity and skills in ninth and 10th grade students who traditionally lack access to hands-on enrichment opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
The initiative will begin with pilot programs in two states on the East Coast, with plans to extend to the Pacific Northwest by 2015. The JVIT initiatives supported by AMG Services build upon invent teams and MIT’s decade-long experience engaging students in invention education activities. Junior varsity invent teams practice invention-based design activities and apply their learned skills to create useful and unique projects. Students will also learn to present projects at regional capstone events alongside other teams and their varsity counterparts.
“The JVIT initiative engages students in skill-building and valuable after-school opportunities that they might not otherwise experience,” said Jim Rockwell, spokesman for AMG Services. “Students learn how to safely use tools and explore new materials, building a strong foundation in scientific and technical skills. Handbooks and activities created for teachers and students along with access to a network of invention education experts provide JVIT with the resources they need to excel in hands-on learning opportunities.”
AMG Services is a financial company serving the needs of all. They have been a leader in the world of groundbreaking technology for more than 15 years and choose to support young entrepreneurs with individual grants, seed money, and start up investment. AMG Services experience will help JVIT students to gain confidence in their ability to become inventors, makers, fixers, and entrepreneurs. The company’s hope is that students learn to collaborate in a competitive environment, communicate ideas, brainstorm, and persist even in the face of adversity.
