Innovate South Africa offers custom-designed learning experiences in innovation using our youth-focused design thinking curriculum. If you are interested in partnering with Innovate South Africa to offer an innovation challenge, camp or workshop, please contact

Our learning experiences seek to foster skills that are core to innovativeness:

  • problem solving methods
  • increased self-efficacy
  • empathy development
  • communicating ideas
  • team work

Innovation Challenges

In a custom designed workshop, scholars in the Students for a Better Future scholarship program used design thinking to derive solutions to health challenges. The 3-day innovation challenge included stimulating talks from various industry leaders and culminated in the learners presenting their solutions.

Innovation Camps

A camp offers an intense immersive learning experience which creates a unique opportunity for learners to work closely as a team and engage in practical activities that enhance learning.
