40 School Leaders Visit NEIA's Campus for Cultivating Leadership in Education

NEIA hosted a one-day executive education program sponsored by Catalyst Education Lab, a non-profit organization dedicated to elevating education in Hong Kong schools through innovative approaches. Vic Lee, a co-founder of Tencent, founded the program, which brought 40 middle school leaders from Hong Kong for a 2-week study trip in Boston.

NEIA’s Head of Innovation, Matt Kressy, taught courses on innovation leadership with support from NEIA’s teaching staff and innovators. Our innovators were prominently highlighted as articulate spokespeople, and we were thrilled to share our philosophy and experiences with the group.

We were honored to be a part of this program and look forward to future opportunities to collaborate and share knowledge.

Yesterday, our mini inventors went to the Boston Museum of Science to see real life inventions and creations. They dove into design processes to ultimately guide them in their creation of a product which they will be presenting tomorrow!

This week our mini inventors will be focusing on coding and prototyping. Yesterday, students prototyped a lamp, and today, they did the same with a sound machine. Students then used human-centered design to understand how to improve the product for the user by interviewing classmates and staff. Friday, students will present to their classmates, staff, and families their chosen projects starting from their beginning sketches to their prototype to the final product.
