"Students become innovators rather than imitators: the creators, inventors, entrepreneurs and leaders of tomorrow" - The New Zealand Herald

“Pitching learning to children as a fun, interactive experience could be the difference between fostering creativity and stifling it” – Online Educa

“A radical new approach to teaching kids innovation skills” – Hack&Craft NEWS

"If you have a gifted child that wants to create, TechSpaghetti looks like a great tool that you can use to hone your child’s craft" - The Wired Homeschool


My name is Leah and I’m a Music and Digital Arts teacher.  For the past nine years I have been working around the world to inspire creativity in children.

Our children will come to age in a world that we can barely yet conceive of. The lives and careers we are trying to prepare our children for do not yet exist.

I have developed a unique method that works using creative software programs already available free on every Apple computer. My goal is to bring a productive way of learning to children everywhere to give them a practical, outcome-driven process to help them explore and focus their ideas. These skills will pave the way for tomorrow's entrepreneurs, creative strategists and innovative minds.

The way that I teach scaffolds children through creative concepts and processes while they make their own 21st century digital media showpieces, such as soundtracks and films. What children can create independently is truly amazing. Here’s a film made by David and Linus, both aged eight:


Creativity and innovation are not only a joy for kids, but a necessary tool for 21st Century creative careers.

I've started an Indiegogo campaign because I need your help to bring this concept to the world.

Where am I at right now?

Aside from teaching in multiple classrooms in Berlin, I've designed a prototype video version of my lessons. Classroom testing has already begun, and I’m excited to see that it’s taking off.

As successful as I've been teaching existing software programs, I want to create something truly customized for the young creative entrepreneur. I am working on developing an interactive children’s app to bring this learning style to children at home, across the globe. This involves taking the program online and requires funding for IT development and design. Along with my co-founder Elliot, I’m asking for your help to bring this dream to life.

In the meantime we are actively spreading this program to schools around the world for FREE. We've signed up more than 20+ schools to implement my way of teaching starting this August. They’ll use the video prototype that I've designed and classroom-tested. Some of the schools already on board:

  • The Takapuna Normal Intermediate School in Auckland, New Zealand

  • The Berlin Metropolitan School in Germany

  • The Dresden International School in Germany

  • The British International School in Kiev, the Ukraine

  • The International School of London in Qatar

  • The Canadian International School in Singapore

  • The Pathways World School in India


Let's give children a way to learn practical, forward-thinking 21st century skills that will ignite a lifelong-passion for creative entrepreneurship.

Do you want to focus your child’s natural creativity, putting them on the path to future innovation and entrepreneurship? If you can’t wait for the home program, write to me at indiegogo@techspaghetti.com to get the prototype version in your child’s classroom for August.
