The panel will discuss the Build it Better model, which provides teens with the opportunity to spark and ignite their creativity and ingenuity through participation in a unique single-day competition event that connects making, problem-based learning, business skills, product design and marketing. Additional topics to be covered will include how the model was developed, why this model works for engaging teens, and how librarians and media specialists can successfully utilize it in their schools and libraries (for free!), as well as the assistance available to help bring Build it Better your organization.
