Area high school students participate as judges at the Cleveland Clinic’s Medical Innovation Summit!

Imagine poring over information about 15 different health science/biomedicalstart-ups and then trying to select the one that will be the winner of a Shark Tank-like competition. Well, students from 12 area high schools did justthat at Cleveland Clinic’s Medical Innovation Summit last week. The students were part of a program called Judging Innovation, which was developed byCleveland Clinic K–12 Education and Cleveland Clinic Innovations to preparestudents to be judges at the 2019 AMP’D Arena, which kicked off the Medical Innovation Summit.

To prepare for their role as judges, the students engaged in a series of webinars with the Cleveland Clinic Innovations team in which they completed innovative thinking activities, explored Cleveland Clinic’s innovation portfolio, and conducted research on the AMP’D Arena competitors. The students then wrote persuasive essays predicting who they thought would be the winner of the AMP’D Arena.
Prior to the AMP’D Arena, the persuasive essays were scored by John Carroll University’s Writing Center and the schools with the three highest scores were recognized during the introduction of the AMP’D Arena and awarded a cash prize. Winners of the persuasive essay contest were Beaumont School, Gilmour Academy, and Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin.

Students spent the morning and afternoon engaged in the AMP’D Arena, listening to all of the presentations and getting a chance to meet the innovators they had researched.

Teams from the following schools participated in the Judging Innovation connected learning experience and attended the Medical Innovation Summit’s AMP’D Arena at the Global Center for Health Innovation in downtown Cleveland.
