Innovation

OUR PROGRAM

Students are challenged to identify real-world problems and design innovative solutions to affect positive change for a better world. Innovation is the thread that connects technology with the human component.

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT

Our goal is to teach our students not only how to solve technical problems but also learn how to determine the “right” programs to solve by employing the design thinking process.

CURRICULUM

We believe that true innovation forwards the tenants of a sound education: effective problem solving, comprehensive understanding and creative application of knowledge.

Our collaborative space allows students to think together, work as a team and innovate far beyond what one individual can do on his or her own.

TORREY EXPLORER'S FUND

The Torrey Explorers Fund is a venture capital fund supported by generous parent donations, specifically for LJCDS student projects that need additional support and resources to expand. To receive guidance and funding, students must pitch to a panel consisting of entrepreneurs, executives and local experts. Students display and explain their projects during a showcase and pitch their ideas via presentations to a group of experts in order to receive funding.
