Our goal at Intel is to create world-changing technology that enriches the lives of every person on earth.

We invite you to join us as we build the next generation of STEM leaders by attending an Intel Future Skills Employee Academy. Our virtual hands-on and interactive academy will be facilitated by the educators who helped create Intel Future Skills and the Intel Future Skills team. Everything you need to participate in our academy will be mailed to your home.
By the end of the two day, four hour Intel Future Skills Educator Academy, you will: 1) Have developed a deeper understanding of design thinking and how it acts as a framework for Intel Future Skills; 2) Know more about each of the Intel Future Skills projects and categories; and 3) Be ready to deliver Intel Future Skills content with your students and community.
