Using case studies and interactive activities, students will learn tools and essentials to help them develop their business ideas. Students will learn not only business sense but what will also translate into life skills, including goal-setting, speaking and presenting, working on a team, and more. On the last day, parents are invited to watch the teams pitch their ideas.
This is an important part of the day where students will be able to wrap up coding projects or meet with team members for additional brainstorming or discussions. Coaches will be available to provide advice/feedback.
Early Arrival rate is $6/day or $25/week. Extended Day rate is $12/day or $50/week.
