Protecting your own work and respecting the work of others plays an increasingly important role in the professional and private lives of all citizens in the 21st century.
Both teachers and children across the EU can now benefit from the guidance and tested materials included in Ideas Powered @ School, a valuable instrument to bring IP closer to the classroom and increase the creativity and innovation skills that are at the heart of European economic, cultural and social wealth.
Aimed at promoting entrepreneurial and innovation-oriented mindsets, the website features three practical teacher-training modules to inspire educators to include age-appropriate intellectual property principles and concepts in their lessons.
Organise an IP Awareness Day at your school!
Ideas Powered @School provides a structured outline on how to organise an IP Awareness Day for school children with appealing practical activities. These include playground games, logo-making sessions, an inventor’s corner or workshops led by inspiring speakers.
The web page also offers the first-ever resource database of IP-related educational materials from organisations from the EU and beyond, in all EU languages.
