At Thinkery, we think kids are pretty amazing! Part of our mission is to equip and inspire the next generation of creative problem solvers. That’s why we’re so excited to announce that Thinkery is partnering with local musician, Jenn Hartmann Luck to highlight kids who are ALREADY changing the world! Join us on Sunday, November 14th for the official album release party for Raise Your Voices (Songs Celebrating the Kids Who are Changing the World). This inspiring new album is a collection of music featuring songs influenced by real kids who are solving big problems in their communities and beyond.
Meet some of these incredible creative problem-solvers
Local Kids Making a Difference:
This truly special album features young people from all over the USA, including several local creative problem solvers. Thinkery invited two native Austin thinkers who are featured on the album to share their stories and some STEAM activities that YOU can do at home!
When Ian McKenna was 8 years old, he discovered that some of his classmates and friends were experiencing hunger and food scarcity. His creative solution was to start a garden and donate the produce to those in need! Ian recently shared some tips with Thinkery about how to find seeds and propagate vegetables to start a garden at home!
When Kate Gilman Williams was 7 years old, she learned about the everyday dangers that humanity poses on the animal kingdom. Her creative solution was all about advocacy: educating her friends, neighbors, and beyond. Kate wrote the book “Let’s Go On Safari” to spread awareness about animal conservation and inspire others to join her mission. Kate shared her story with Thinkery and has some tips on how you can start advocating for causes that you care about by making a poster!
