ICEE works with Texas, national, and international partners to develop, implement, and research the integration of the arts and innovation thinking with required learning in science, math, and language arts in K-12 schools and out-of-school settings.
Nationally-recognized researchers, educators, businesses, governments, universities, and school systems point out that, in order to be successful in the 21st century, our nation and students must develop vital 21st century thinking skills. These include: conceptual thinking, creative and critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creative problem solving.
- Meet the national and international mandates to train students and teachers in the vital 21st century skills that lead to innovation.
- Accomplish this through integrating state-mandated curriculum with these important skills.
- Increase student and teacher curriculum engagement and learning through integrating state-mandated learning with creative thinking.
- Promote lifelong interest and engagement in STEM, the arts, and creative thinking.
