Youth Entrepreneurs Excite the Medical Community!

Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute and the British International School of Houston Partner to Cultivate Young Inventors

  • Young Inventors

As part of the International Primary Curriculum topic, ‘Inventions That Changed the World,’ students aged 7-8 were assigned to identify a health-care problem, research a possible solution, and build a medical prototype. In partnership with the Texas Medical Center’s life science accelerator (TMCx), 80 students from the British International School of Houston introduced their devices to an audience of parents and other guests from the medical community.

In a three-minute pitch, teams of four presented their inventions to a judging panel led by William F. McKeon, COO, Texas Medical Center, and Director of the TMC Innovation Institute as well as doctors, scientists and business leaders from Rice University, the Gensler design firm and the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

The British International School of Houston’s partnership with TMCx was facilitated by Dr. Kate Forth, a visiting scientist at NASA and the CEO of iShoe, one of the inaugural TMCx startups.
