I like math, but I must admit I skim the long algebraic proofs as so many
sqiggles.  Really good (imo) math is explained geometrically/visually.
Yeah, I know that might make an engineer raise an eyebrow, but I'm going to
trust that experience with your scouts has shown you a hands(eyes)-on
approach can be more effective than reading the manual for those with a
modality preference. :)

To that end,  I recently discovered a youtube channel called Mathologer
that has an inspiring speaker and a visual explanation of some pretty cool
math stuff

Are we talking about highfalutin ideas followed by QED... or actually
outlining a plan to make a deliverable product? I hate to tell you,  this
is isn't an easy road from great idea through hand-wavey step to buttload
of money.  I know that is your oft-stated motivation for doing things
