Learn the keys to engaged student learning facilitated through the lens of real world entrepreneurship experiences
This workshop examines STEM education through the lens of entrepreneurship: students creating technology. Sometimes this involves coursework, other times it involves extracurricular activities such as internships, hackathons and investor pitches
Different versions of this workshop meet at 1871, the digital entrepreneurship incubator in Chicago's Merchandise Mart and at IMSA in the new innovation space known as IN2.
IMSA's entrepreneurship program, TALENT, is extracurricular and multifaceted. Students travel to 1871 on Wednesdays where they intern with digital startups and work on their own business ideas. IMSA is a partner with 1871, bringing high school students into the STEM startup pipeline in Illinois. Face to face and remote opportunities enable students to develop life-long entrepreneurial mindsets and skills.
This workshop explores facets of several high school entrepreneurship programs from coast to coast, including the TALENT program, that fill the high school entrepreneurship gap.
