St. George's is one of just a handful schools chosen to partner with Project Invent for the 2019-2020 school year.
Project Invent will connect SG with a community-based partner and students will then design and produce a piece of technology that will solve a real-world problem for that organization. In the process, students will get to collaborate with professors from Stanford School and MIT with the hope of creating a solution that enacts meaningful social change.
Director of the Merck Center for Teaching Justin Cerenzia '01 applied to Project Invent and will be the students' team mentor.
"It is a highly selective process and we're humbled and excited to be a part of the 2019-2020 cohort," Cerenzia said. "One of the goals of Project Invent is to 'transform maker spaces into impactful spaces of social change.' We hope to honor that goal via our maker space here on campus and to demonstrate how students might 'live a life of service,' not just upon completion of their time on the Hilltop, but also during."
