Event Details

This one-week course immerses teachers in design thinking and lean startup methodology concepts using a hands-on curriculum to promote entrepreneurship with their students. Teachers will learn to encourage and value creativity, divergent thinking, and informed risk-taking in their students.

Teachers’ students will develop a growth mindset, reduce the fear of failure, and think of themselves as entrepreneurs. Students will be encouraged to consider starting their own businesses, whether now or in the future, and will develop an interest in and connection to post-secondary education.

In addition to the course, teachers will receive on-going mentorship and resources during the school year while they implement the curriculum, and during the Spring of 2018, MCEE will host a tradeshow for participants’ students to share their prototypes and startup ventures.
