Workshop for Educators in Entrepreneurship
June 11 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Collegiate to Workshop for Educators in Entrepreneurship
Over the past five years, Collegiate has seen a steady increase in student participation and enthusiasm for opportunities connected to entrepreneurship and design thinking. Building on that excitement, Collegiate, in partnership with Governor’s School for Entrepreneurship and with funding support from the E.E. Ford Foundation, will host a free workshop for educators interested in learning more about how to integrate elements of entrepreneurship and design thinking into their programs for elementary, middle, and high school students. Sessions will be led by some of Collegiate’s own faculty alongside professors from UK and UofL and members of the GSE faculty, and all attendees will be able to pilot a new curriculum designed by GSE and Awesome Inc. aimed at simulating a startup experience for secondary students. A full description of the day can be found here. It should be a great opportunity for people to learn new ideas and develop relationships with other teachers and leaders in the entrepreneurship community. If you or someone you know is interested in participating in either the workshop or the startup competition, don’t hesitate to reach out to me or Mandy Helton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
