Social good innovation builds strong communities and economies. Yet, a major question driving our work is how does innovation happen and who becomes an innovator? There are estimated millions of "lost Einsteins," those students who have the potential to become innovators, yet don't have access to innovation culture. Access to innovation culture can be influenced by gender, geographic location, socio-economic status, and race. We'll share our work to break down the access barriers and develop thousands of teen and teacher changemakers around the globe. Implications for XR virtual exchanges will be shared.
