Solving the world's problems may seem like a daunting task for a group of young people, but the design-led social innovation organization, Breaker, challenges them to do just that. Over the course of a 3-month period, 18-24 year olds collaborate to create a solution to a challenge posed by industry experts. Breaker’s unique experience enables students to create their own entrepreneurship opportunities and gain valuable hands-on experience. Take a look at the video to learn more about Breaker and see what students are creating.

This is the second of six videos in the Teaching for Tomorrow series, which explores learning approaches that best prepare students for the workforce of the 21st century.

Presented by Apollo Group, Teaching for Tomorrow explores education, innovation and technology in schools through original videos and info graphics.
