On December 8, Think It Up Live kicked-off with more than 200 students and teachers from Denver area school districts to brainstorm ideas learning projects that were then submitted for crowd-funding, accompanied by Denver leaders including Mayor Michael Hancock; Colorado Avalanche Center Matt Duchene and DPS Board President Anne Rowe.
Think It Up is a new movement in support of the nation’s students, teachers and schools, helping generate excitement about learning everywhere in America and building a sense of optimism about the changes underway in classrooms across the country. A science fair-meets “shark tank”-type event, Think It Up Live allowed students to create and pitch innovative learning projects to judges and experts. All participating teams were awarded $100 funding credits to kick-start their projects; the top winner received $1,000. The students’ teachers can then post the projects at ThinkItUp.org, a site that gives the public an opportunity to help fund the Denver projects.
