The Live from 495 podcast interviews business owners and entrepreneurs on the 495 beltway, to learn more about what they do, how they do it, and most importantly, how they are making an impact in our local community. During this episode, Matt Kressy of the New England Innovation Academy (NEIA) discussed how NEIA supports future students by building a foundation in a strong and unique academic structure.

As a private day and boarding school serving domestic and international students in grades 6-12, NEIA has been welcoming its students since September 2021. The vision of the New England Innovation Academy is to prepare the next generation of innovators to pursue their dreams and shape a better world, and the team will carry out this vision through human-centered design, a future-focused curriculum, and real-world inclusion.

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.
