In 2016 Thinking Cap will donate 500,000 seats to educational programs that can change the world. Selected programs will have use of Thinking Cap for two years at which time they may reapply. We hope to grow the program each year.
While any organization may apply we give preference to projects that further education technology and science. In particular we are seeking applications in the following areas.
Carbon Sequestration Technologies
Climate change is the great challenge of the 21st century and it will be solved by science. We wish to support a cleanup project to remove a hundred years of industrialization. Do you have a way to stick it under the ocean? Or design a new cow that poops carbon blocks? Or just a boring machine that pulls it right out of the air. We think all of this is amazing and if you have a need to training anyone on anything to get this technology out there let us know.
Nothing will change the world more in the next decade than this new molecular “Photoshop”. Teams around the world are extending what we can do every day. Do you have a need to train scientists? To educate politicians and the public? Let us help.
Advancement of Best Practices in Public Education
We believe in Public Education. Used correctly it can be a great tool to aid teachers. We want to give you software for content creation and delivery to try new things. It doesn’t have to be a huge implementation; just show us you have an idea that can make a difference. Particular attention will be given to strategies for kids at risk and dyslexia.
Distance learning in the Developing World
Are you a ministry of education with more learners than teachers and a huge geographical area to cover? We would like to help. We can give you tools to create eLearning content and deliver it to your children. Particular attention will be given to the education of girls.
