Open IDEO Junior would give kids ranging from ages 12 to 17 the chance to show off their creativity online much like we are doing right now.
Teenagers usually feel the brunt of suppressed creativity. They are still considered children, but want to be regarded as adults. So why not allow for them to post and take-part in challenges like Open IDEO offers?
Open IDEO Junior would allow kids ages 12-17 to partake in events much like Open IDEO offers to adults. This would allow for them to open up their creativity in a safe place online. They will also know that they will be helping bigger causes and be able to connect with adults who share their ideas on Open IDEO as well.
