These include 11 character cards, 13 character bookmarks, a large poster-size map of Curiosity Creek, a child's personal size map with fun activities on the flip side, an 11 X 17 poster of Hector and the Engineering Design Process, a brief video welcome video to orient children to the imaginary context, and even two fully illustrated eBooks created just for this project that can be used in the event that your library must pivot to virtual programs and is concerned about copyright issues.

The Innovation Destination
The Innovation Destination was designed and evaluated by a team from the Center for Digital Literacy at the School of Information Studies, Syracuse University and developed by Data Momentum Inc, in partnership with the Connecticut Invention Convention, By Kids for Kids, New York On Tech, and over 70 school librarians and young innovators.
This site has been serving the youth invention community from 2015 - present.
