Intellectual Property Resources for Educators

In collaboration with the 20 Million Minds Foundation, IPO Education Foundation created the following outlines and presentations for teachers and educators to use to speak to various age groups about intellectual property.

Each unit below is offered as a turnkey lesson plan and presentation, but we encourage you to tailor the materials to your students’ needs.

Special thanks to the Michelson 20MM Foundation for its generosity and help in providing these resources. Visit the 20MM Foundation’s website to learn more about its work.
