Innovation Expert and Author Nicholas Webb, launches Innovation Training Platform in the form of an Educational Toy.
San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/05/2015 -- World-renowned innovation author and thought leader Nicholas Webb is on a mission to get America Inventing Again. Why? Last few years China has actually filed more US patents than US companies.
According to Webb this is a national emergency. "In the old days we needed to train factory workers to essentially be compliant robots. Today we need to teach innovation and innovation doesn't come with instructions". Webb's concern is that many toys today are nothing more than three-dimensional puzzles that come with step-by-step instructions that are great for teaching replication, but very poor on teaching innovation.
During the Industrial Revolution we created the manufacturing boom, which we later turned over to China. Today were very much at risk of losing our innovation leadership in the world by not exposing our children to real-world innovation platforms and training.
Webb invented a full line of educational toys http://www.hanztoys.com that shockingly boast the phrase "Instructions Not Included". His goal is to get children interested in exploration, ideation and ultimately innovation. His toys were so well received that they became one of the most award-winning construction sets in the toy industry. He believes that we need to go beyond the current STEM education programs an acronym for Science, Technology Engineering and Math and start getting kids inventing at an early age.
