InnoWorks Academy serves students from schools eligible for the free/reduced lunch program. The curriculum for the week-long program is developed and implemented by a team of Caltech undergraduate students. In June 2015 the Caltech chapter of InnoWorks hosted one of the largest programs nationwide with over 70 middle and junior-high school students, 13 undergraduate mentors, and 5 undergraduate mentor coordinators. The program included activities ranging from building and racing LEGO Mindstorm robots, to modeling a pollutant’s dispersion into an aquifer.

InnoWorks is where students’ experience, engage, and conduct science, where they learn not just about science, but also about collaboration, leadership, and innovation.” – Rebekah Zhou, 2014 undergraduate mentor
