Designed to cultivate ingenuity by challenging students to strategize, problem-solve and think creatively, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center hosts programs on design thinking and social entrepreneurship, engineering, and computer science.
Think, Do, Make: A Project-Based Curriculum
Masters’ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program encourages students to think, do and make — and to foster a cross-disciplinary, entrepreneurial thought process, all while developing skills, ideas and character traits.
Through our program's project-based model, students build confidence, accumulate hands-on experience, take risks, nurture unconventional talents, and tackle real-life challenges. Our hope is to ingrain in our students the capacity to think creatively and ambitiously, and provide them with the skills to be able to successfully navigate the complex workforce they will face in the future.

ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS
Both middle and upper school students benefit from the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center's academic enrichment program, which focuses on interscholastic team competitions. Participation in our award-winning engineering and robotics, coding, and cybersecurity teams is by invitation, nomination, or through an application and selection process.
Additionally, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center is home to Masters Makers, a club where students design, build and craft. Projects range from creating cabinetry to digital electronics, and utilize both hand tools and innovative technologies such as 3D printers, laser cutters/engravers, microcontrollers, computer numerical controller (CNC) tools, and open-source platforms.
As captain of this year’s Cybersecurity Team, Teddy Meyer ’24 is aiming high. “I aim to lead the team to success, hopefully qualifying for the top division as we did last year and potentially going further this year to the national semifinals or even finals,” Meyer said.
