In the IWU IDEA Center program, attendees will have an opportunity to ...

See firsthand the IDEA Center at Illinois Wesleyan University, also considered the innovation hub of the school. The center has multiple opportunities to practice entrepreneurial thinking and projects. As part of that, teens will participate in a project that that will include making custom buttons, engraving keychains, engraving coasters, making stickers, or creating custom embroidery and T-Shirt decals that they will take home at the end of the program. If you would like to make a T-Shirt, please bring with you a T-shirt in your size.

Thanks to our friends at the IWU IDEA Center for helping us with this event!
