Think It Up

As a founding corporate sponsor of Think It Up, ExxonMobil is proud to join leading education philanthropies and foundations to shine a light on national education issues. The goal of Think it Up is to establish a renewed sense of excitement for learning and focus on programs that are making a difference.

Launched by the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), the philanthropic arm of the entertainment industry and organization behind Stand Up to Cancer, Think It Up is a multi-year education initiative designed to harness the collective power of entertainers and mass media to build excitement for education as the pathway for success.

The initiative kicks off with a television “roadblock” – a special program broadcast simultaneously on the four major U.S. networks – on September 11, 2015 at 8 p.m. ET and PT. The telecast includes real-world stories of educators making a difference, student-inspired projects narrated by celebrity spokespeople, and musical and comedic performances.

Additionally, Think It Up will sponsor a national grant challenge and series of local community events as well as the Innovation Awards for those who best exemplify deeper learning and real world problem-solving in STEM and other areas.
