Our Students'
Innovations

Since 2016, when DiscoverSTEM mentored the first team of innovator kids, all aged between  7-18 years, they have been leading the way on the path of innovation.

They have imbibed innovative thinking and entrepreneurial mindset and solved real-life pressing problems in different domains, that include Aerospace, Power, Energy, Security, Health, Environment, Infrastructure, Ocean Health, Transportation, World Hunger, Mental Health, Water, Artificial Intelligence, Child Safety among others.

Some of these innovations have gone on to win some of the most prestigious awards in global student innovation competitions. Many of the innovations were evaluated as an ‘Innovation of National Security Importance’ by US Federal agencies on the recommendation of the United States Patents & Trademark Office.

Our student’s innovative solutions and products are in the process of being commercialized and making a global impact. Our program is helping young innovators to become serial entrepreneurs at a very young age.

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.
