The Innovation Warriors program spans through all grade levels at St. David’s school. Students are challenged to directly apply their knowledge and skills to address the needs of others. Teachers assist students in identifying needs in the community, both near and far, and guide them through creative problem solving. As students gain more independence through middle and upper school, the challenges become more complex, with active working prototypes being developed. Each stage of the Innovation Warrior journey is focused on empathy for others, creative problem solving, and clear communication of findings. At the culminating steps of the journey, students can pursue an independent study to focus on a single problem for the entirety of a term or school year. In the past, students have formed connections within the community that have led to lifelong partnerships.

Taking the Innovation & Design class sparked my curiosity to learn more about all that is out there. In looking back at my experience, I learned that knowing about technology is necessary to be an entrepreneur."Robert Batchelder '19
