Event Details

Phoebe Miles is the President and Co-Founder of the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention in Gainesville, Florida. The museum, named after Gatorade inventor (and Ms. Miles’ father) James Robert Cade, exists to transform communities by inspiring and equipping future inventors, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. In 2017 the Museum opened a 21,000-sf. building that was later named the best new building project in the southeastern United States. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, which received public foundation status in 2018.

The original content of the Cade Museum features hands-on creativity and STEM classes, online videos, rotating exhibits, a weekly Radio Cade podcast, and the Cade Prize, a preeminent annual competition for inventors and entrepreneurs that has awarded $600,000 in seed awards to date. Ms. Miles designed the Museum’s proprietary education curriculum, Invent Possible, a framework for lifelong STEM learning through the lens of invention. Invent Possible teaching units are tied to Next Generation Science Standards and will be available to teachers at all grades.

A native of Gainesville, Ms. Miles graduated Phi Beta Kappa and received a B.A. in German, a B.A. in History, and a teacher’s certificate from the University of Washington in 1987. She is fluent in German, and working on Spanish, Mandarin, and French. From 1988-2006, she and her husband spent over a decade living and working overseas in Germany, Barbados, and Argentina. They have lived intermittently in Washington D.C. since 1992 and have three adult children and one granddaughter.
