DiscoverSTEM
Innovation Program
(DIP)

6–8 Month Midterm Course

Program Details

The DiscoverSTEM Innovation Program is designed to turn kids into innovators and problem-solvers of tomorrow. Kids are natural out-of-the-box thinkers and have unique ideas. But due to their limitations, they do not know how to convert their ideas into an invention or innovation. That’s where our program comes in and teaches children on how to solve real-world problems and become an innovator.
The program comprises two fundamental parts – the Foundation Course (Part 1) and the Implementation Course (Part 2). The Foundation course trains them to think like innovators and problem solvers and arms them with the skills required to research and innovate. In the Implementation Course, their acquired skills are put to the test wherein they identify a real-world problem and innovate solutions to that problem.

Hisham Ahmad - CMO

I am a 14-year-old freshman attending Brighter Horizons Academy in Garland, Texas. I have extensive experience with marketing, as I have been a part of various companies and mentorships. I graduated from the DiscoverStem program, allowing new doors to open up for me, and change the way I see things. The DiscoverStem program has also given me more experience with concepts such as patents, invention, and innovation, as well as inspiration to use these skills to help the world around us.

DiscoverSTEM founders Mirza Rizwan and Mirza Faizan have made history by becoming the first Indian to win the coveted George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation – USA.

Started in 1949 by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Freedoms Foundation honors exceptional contributions of Americans towards communities in the USA. Generally reserved for the US citizens, the awarding organization made an exception to recognize the stellar research work and its impact of India’s Mr. Rizwan in designing and implementing a unique STEM & Innovation program for American children, thereby revolutionizing the education system in the USA.

Few of the other notable non-US citizens who have received George Washington Honor Medal include Ms. Margaret Thatcher (Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom), Lech Walesa (Former President of Poland and Noble Prize winner) and world-renowned Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. As the latest recipients of this prestigious honor, Mirza brothers join historically acclaimed group of citizens whose work and dedication advance the American ideals, the award letter says.

Some of the distinguished US citizens who have received this award for their stellar contributions in their field are Walt Disney, Astronauts Sally Ride and John Glenn, Capt. Sully Sullenberger, Athletes like Arthur Ashe, George Foreman and Tiger Woods and famous US educator Jaime Escalante.
