Oregon Innovation Academy Launch and Unconference
Franklin High School

The Innovation Academy is bringing together students, teachers, and working professionals from the Northwest’s technology industries to empower students with new skills sets of the digital age.

Teams will work collaboratively to build software applications and other technology-­‐based solutions that solve real world problems that exist within our community. The solutions that will emerge from these teams will be known as "Innovation for the Common Good."

The region’s first "Innovation Academy will be launching at Franklin High School Saturday, May 18 from 2-­‐5pm. The launch will offer students the opportunity to form project teams that will meet over the summer to work on their projects with industry mentors. New solutions in areas such as education, the environment, energy and public safety will be explored.

Attendees at the launch event will preview a new community safety mobile app that is being developed by a team of Franklin and Wilson students working with industry experts and the Portland Police Bureau. Designed to improve communication and collaboration between district police officers and the neighborhoods that they serve, the new mobile app is an example of the kind of impact student-­‐based innovation can bring to Oregon.

All students, teachers and technology industry professionals are welcome to participate in the launch event. Once teams have been formed and projects are begun, their solutions will be demonstrated in a large community celebration when the school year resumes next fall.
