A makerspace for kids. A place where young people can go to have an opportunity to explore their own interests; learn to use technologies and materials, both physical and virtual; and develop creative projects through design thinking and problem solving. Innovators Academy is locally owned, and run by an experienced teacher.
Innovators Academy was founded by Annie Barrows in 2018. It was created out of her love for helping kids to become innovators. Annie has her Masters in Educational Technology, and has worked in schools for 14 years all over the world, including Waukee, Kansas City, New York City, and Dubai. She has experienced the evolution of educational technology, and knows where it is going in the future. With the help of technology, we need to help kids to become innovators. How do we do that? We help them to find their passion and see the purpose in their learning. We also help kids to become creative problems solvers through making, creating, building, and designing.
