Summary:

I’d like to pilot secondary schools as amazing innovators of math and science with state of the art curriculum, teachers, labs and guest speakers. I’d like us to shine with scientific innovation in our secondary classrooms with our graduates heading for the best educational institutions. This would show it is possible for all people to excel as well as build a cadre of positively educated students that have experienced the value of great science and math education.

What makes your idea different or unexpected? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

It would brand st. paul with an interest in excellence in education and regard for its youth. It would be an unusual way to draw attention to a city and would encourage people to live in St. Paul. It is a way to put excitement back into learning and to insure our regard for the next generation as a resource of intellect and power.

How will your idea make a difference in Saint Paul? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

It would draw more people back into public schools and put all kids on an even playing field regardless of their economic background. They would all have access to great learning and mentorship and have an equal chance of success. Long term studies would show that success is possible for any child, making st. paul stand out as an outstanding city to learn and raise families in. Future generations would know about st. paul and its love of learning that will cascade into all aspects of life: innovative projects, careers and city structures.

Why do you think people will recognize or remember your idea after it comes to life? How might it inspire others to do something similar in their community? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

We could tell stories of kids and how they are succeeding. that information could be on city PR and also on social media etc. The kids will be able to do science competitively and the schools will be listed as the best in the country, attracting people to live here. As kids grow up they will talk about their extraordinary experience and commit to make that true for their kids also. It will be a multigenerational commitment to learning that will make us proud.
