Inspiring Fearless Innovators
Be a part of something bigger
Get ready to innovate with us every week starting in September! Our online Innovator’s Club for Kindergarten – 5th graders delivers the hands-on, Galileo-style learning kids love on a convenient weekly schedule (with a convenient monthly subscription). In a consistent group led by an enthusiastic instructor, kids find something new to craft, construct or invent every week—igniting their curiosity and building lasting creative confidence along the way.
In a school year marked by uncertainty, Innovator’s Club is a joyful educational constant. For an hour or two a week, kids huddle up with a familiar crew to tackle a fun design or engineering project that sparks their creativity and inspires them to keep tweaking and tinkering long after the session ends.

*NOTE: Galileo Innovator’s Club operates during the school year – with short recesses corresponding to select holidays and school breaks. In 2021 we will not operate during the weeks beginning: March 29, May 31, November 22 and December 27. Additionally, the program will be paused over the summer months June, July, August.
Every week at Innovator's Club brings new adventures, projects and ways of thinking. Using a design process inspired by the Stanford d.school, our curriculum is carefully crafted to build age-appropriate innovation skills that deepen as kids grow. Here's a peek at a few sample activities.
Create fierce and funny works of art, inventions made to move and much more. Practice folding, cutting and collaging techniques to craft a fantastically fun quirky creature and a printed-paper dinosaur. Build strong construction skills brick-by-brick with a custom Lego car. Investigate aerodynamics as you engineer and launch a high-flying cardboard glider.
Bring creative contraptions, expressive artwork and lots more to life every week. Explore elasticity and master 3D paper construction as you build a rubber band-powered cannon and a marvelous marble roller coaster. Practice designing characters and drawing facial features for a four-panel comic strip. Be visionary to craft an inventive, dimensional alien mask.
Build practical inventions, develop digital art and perfect original recipes with projects that boost ability and inspire originality. Embrace the challenges of cardboard construction as you engineer cool custom cabinets and a sturdy phone/tablet stand. Add some awesome to your online interactions with a graphic, virtual zoom background created using design-app Canva. Get a taste of culinary innovation by whipping up uniquely-flavored mini cheesecakes and gourmet popsicles.
