To further the Foundation’s mission, Ms. Conrad, one of the top 100 influencers in STEM education, established the Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge, where groups of young adults between the ages of 13 and 18 from around the world develop a new and inventive product and present it to a panel of industry leaders for guidance and assessment. After passing through the second round of the competition, teams are invited to Cape Canaveral, Florida, where they participate in a summit and compete for a range of awards for innovation.
During their meeting, Ameson’s directors discussed the possibility of partnering with the Conrad Foundation to expand the competition’s reach into China and provide opportunities for bright young Chinese students to contribute to the truly global conversation found at the Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge Summit. This cooperation would strengthen Ameson’s commitment to STEM education and add to the diversity of participants in the Summit. The Ameson Foundation looks forward to discussions with the Conrad Foundation on future cooperation in the field of international STEM education and exchange.
