How to Succeed as an Innovator
A free, virtual, international exchange program for university students in Philadelphia and Egypt who are interested in improving our world through science, technology, engineering, and math innovations.
If you have an interest in exploring the world, this program will introduce you to Egypt.
You will learn about Egypt's culture and share stories of your own American experience, build skills in how to communicate cross-culturally, and hear from three STEM innovators who turned their inventions into businesses.
With our partners at The 21st Century Partnership for STEM Education (21PSTEM), you can meet alumni from schools dedicated to solving Egypt’s Grand Challenges. Experts at the Dialogue Institute will guide you through four sessions on the Ten Dialogue Principles, how to have an informed conversation and examining stereotypes and bias and respond with dialogue and tolerance.
You will get a behind the scenes look at Pennovation and the Science Center’s Entrepreneur Bootcamp. Best of all you will personally meet some Philadelphians who are saving lives around the world through their own scientific discoveries and who are leaders in social entrepreneurship.
