Student entrepreneurship curriculum that provides true engagement in a learn-by-doing, real-world setting. 

Students learn and apply business start-up practices and concepts to projects they're passionate about.  They build, test, learn, apply - embracing the cycle of experimentation, which is core to entrepreneurship and great training ground for life -- they get comfortable with failing and learning from failure.  Working in teams and being supported by a dynamic mix of teachers, coaches, and mentors, all translates to deeper learning and skill building.  

The Student Experience is:

Authentic | Students learn and practice industry-based skills, in a real-world environment - not a simulation
Experiential | Project-based learning (PBL) for engagement and deeper learning 
Connected | Connected to community & industry and 'the what' and 'the why' they are learning

It's really cool to go out and really make a difference.

All of us are really passionate about the environment, and a world free of plastic pollution. And, to solve a problem just using our own solution and creating a business out of it is really interesting.
