A culture of innovation provides the foundation so that people can turn ideas into results and improve communities. Innovation can be found in all industries, fields, locations and communities - not just in business, technology, engineering or the physical sciences. According to the pioneering work of Nobel Prize winner Robert Solow, technological innovation is the ultimate source of productivity and growth. It's the only proven way for economies to consistently get ahead - especially innovation born by start-up companies

Lessons in computer programming will be adopted by the national curriculum for primary schools in England from September.

However, this is not a new concept for schools in Estonia who have been teaching computer programming for some time:

Why Estonia Has Started Teaching Its First-Graders To Code

Estonia, a small country with a population of 1.3 million people, punches above its own weight when it comes to advancements in tech. It was the birthplace of Skype, one of the first countries to have a government that was fully e-enabled, and now it has launched a nationwide scheme to teach school kids from the age of seven to 19, how to write code. The idea isn’t to start churning out app developers of the future, but people who have smarter relationships with technology, computers and the Web .

Great article about Taft High School posted on Enquirer Website

While we celebrate this fantastic improvement and a great collaboration between the school and Cincinnati Bell, the question is:

why don't we have similar sponsorships for all schools in Cincinati? 

It is clearly a great success story, so all major companies in Cincinnati should be talking to Cincinnati Bell and the school principle about how the process works, what can they learn from it and how they can replicated it by "adopting" another school in our city. 

So who is next?

Another great example of kids getting passioned about science.

This time a group of 8-10 year olds conducted a research about how bumblbees see colors and patters, and they have written a report about it that was recently published by the prestigious scientific publication, the Biology Letters, a peer-reviewed journal of Britain's Royal Society.
