Much of STEM education is focused on sustaining technologies, which get more complex and expensive over time. However, many customers are actually best served by solutions that are simpler and cheaper, opening up opportunities for disruptive innovations.

Learning GoalsĀ 

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the difference between disruptive and sustaining innovations
  • Identify different customer segments, including under-served, over-served, and not-served
  • Recognize historical examples of disruptive innovation
  • Complete an activity intended to explore a particular industry, technology, or product for potential disruptive innovations, which can also be used to teach disruptive innovation to students
