Summer Highlights

Young Innovators Quest

DNOVA finished up a successful three weeks of our Young Innovators Quest program at IUPUI. Here’s what our staff had to say:

“It was an honor working with YiQ and getting to know the diversity of personalities of these bright and innovative students. The most rewarding feeling was seeing these students grow professionally, academically, and most important: socially.” – Natalia Garcia

Internal Updates

Our dedicated staff have been promoting innovation and research in our summer programming. The DNOVA team has been tirelessly organizing and executing not one, but two successful summer programs, with a third to come.  They have also been creating captivating graphics promoting the programming we have to offer. Additionally, the team has been hard at work coordinating engaging industry visits around the city of Indianapolis.

The DNOVA Impact

The participants of the Young Innovators Quest had the privilege of touring 6 Indianapolis industries and 6 STEM related academic laboratories at IUPUI. The industry visits included Eli Lilly, Cummins, Corteva, the IU School of Medicine Gross Anatomy Lab, the Vincennes University Aviation Center, and the Indianapolis Airport.

Our program would not have been possible without the partnership of these companies. DNOVA is grateful for our relationships with each of them.
