Like many Canadian parents across the country, Ontario-based mom, Missy Geiger, found herself teaching her kids at home with the onset of COVID-19 and resulting school shutdown. Unsurprisingly, this left her searching for new and innovative ways to keep her kids engaged and learning while at home. 

 We partnered with Missy to integrate our Education for Innovation resources into her at-home learning plan. The resources provide support for parents and educators alike to inspire young innovators through activities and lesson plans in both English and French. Along with her children, Missy learned all about great Canadian innovations like the zipper – which was first produced in St. Catharines, Ontario!  

 “The resources provided by Canadian Innovation Space were thoughtful, entertaining, and age-appropriate for my children. They enjoyed learning about the invention of the zipper and that it was conceived so close to home, making worldwide history. I found the website easy to navigate and the content kept my children entertained and engaged.”

 As she explored the resources, Missy shared the experience on her Instagram channel, encouraging her audience to try them out for themselves! On her Instagram stories, Missy walked her followers through the Canadian Innovation Space website, showing them how to navigate the resources while chatting about everything her family learned. Her audience was excited to check the resources out firsthand – see below for their feedback at a glance!
