What did I really learn from discovering how STEM schools are innovative? I learned that there are distinctions between traditional schools, or the model that is most predominant in our schools today, unfortunately for the students who have to attend them and innovative schools, where the school culture and school design abound with opportunities to become entrepreneurial and future ready.  And, to further the point, it is the students that create the future, with international peers using product-oriented learning.

It is imperative that schools examine their school design-school culture to find out what their innovative core elements and components are in terms of their degree of innovation.  No longer will schools sustain students’ passion and engagement in a traditional school environment.  I have learned that the successful STEM schools in my study had critical elements and components that were innovative, yet, due to certain barriers disussed in Part 4, were not as innovative as they longed to be.
