Event description


This virtual workshop for long-distance learning, will be piloted during the 2019 summer break.

AlligatorZone® Academy’s Summer Enrichment Workshop 2019 returns this summer, piloting a virtual summer workshop, on the heels of two successful summers running face-to-face workshops, as well as success with game-based and project-based pilots in after-school enrichment programs.

  • Purpose: This is a 'Launch & Learn' workshop, which presents startup skills made simple for kids, to give children an opportunity to embark on a joyful journey of doing something cool for their community, while developing a personal brand. It is never too early to start investing in entrepreneurial leadership skills training and gently guiding innately curious children towards getting prepared to build a body of work of which they can be proud.

  • The 2019 Workshop’s Goals: To teach skills to launch a change-making project or product and start building one's personal brand. In this workshop, kids will work at home with a timed-release of our curriculum, interspersed with virtual coaching sessions with an experienced coach to steer them towards executing on a project based on their own areas of interest -- something that contributes to making their world better. The kids will use online collaboration tools to follow along on their respective journeys. These will be entrepreneurial initiatives which they can start and continue working on long after the workshop ends, thus getting started on a pathway to building a body of social-impact work that could help them throughout their school years, should they wish to pursue it seriously. Further, the entrepreneurial-skills they will learn along the way, such as communication and cash-flow management, are skills that will come handy, no matter what their career path or calling may be in future.

  • Eligibility: This workshop is for grade levels 4 - 8, and ideal for students of all disciplines who make things or want to explore their interest in making things that people need. It is not limited to those in STEM, STEAM, but even for those interested in arts, crafts, writing or in serving society with age-appropriate skills.

  • Event Timing and Duration: Four weekly Saturday mid-morning web-conferences held online at 10 a.m. Pacific Time / 1 p.m. Eastern Time, beginning June 1, 2019 till June 28, 2019

  • Learning Tools: Paced instruction worksheets mailed out weekly, along with ongoing learning material during the week, as needed.

  • Coaching: In between the web-conferences, students will be coached through online collaboration tools and via email as needed to check on their progress and help guide them, until the end of the workshop on June 28, 2019.

  • Parental Involvement: We encourage parental involvement to help the kids at home, and make it a shared experience for the kids.
