I.D.E.A. Summit

On Tuesday, May 7, 2024, the Langley School District is excited to celebrate Innovation, Design, Entrepreneurship, and Altruism! The event will take place at the Langley Events Centre (Building B- Fieldhouse).

This is the 4th year of the I.D.E.A. Summit, and it is BIGGER and BETTER than before!  The Summit is a Celebration of Learning and is designed much like a Fair; each booth is run by an individual or team of students showcasing a passion project, business plan (and product), or innovative idea on making a POSITIVE change in this world!  The students hosting these booths range from grades 4-12.  It will be an exciting day providing an opportunity to learn, participate, and be inspired by the hard work of these students.  For students, it is a PROUD moment where they get to share their project’s journey and achievements.

Information for Teachers:

There are two ways students can engage in the 2024 IDEA Summit:

As a student showcasing products:

  • Individual students would be nominated by their school & district staff to sell their products in the Market Showcase.

As a student visitor:

  • Classroom teachers can bring their class to visit the IDEA Summit Market Showcase to purchase products, or do a variety of ADST design challenges. •
  • Prior to arriving, classroom teachers can give the Curiosity Quest (Scavenger Hunt) to students so they can search and find answers to clues at the Market Showcase. Students who complete the quest will be eligible for a prize.

Teachers who are interested in bringing their students to the IDEA Summit can find all of the necessary letters and paperwork required below:
