In order for us to fully meet the opportunities and challenges of the future, we need to develop millions of young people into innovators. To do so we will need to create educational programs that capture the hearts of a broad range of kids – not just those who self-identify early on as 'creative' or 'science kids.'

Galileo Learning operates summer STEAM programs that boast a 50-50 boy-girl ratio and generally appeal to a wide range of children, making Camp Galileo the most heavily attended summer program in the Bay Area. Founder Glen Tripp will share program design strategies that have helped Galileo to succeed in casting a wide net.
