About Lemonade Stand Camp
In an exponentially changing world, our education system is doing what it can to maintain pace, relevance and impart the skills required to prosper in the 21st century.
However, technology and business model innovation moves much quicker than the school system is capable of responding. As such, the very existence of jobs traditionally seen as ‘safe’ such as accounting is being questioned and today’s kids are facing an uncertain future in which they are likely to have several careers and up to 15 jobs.
Clearly, a capacity for personal reinvention and an ability to identify new business and personal growth opportunities will be of significant importance.Help your children learn the basics of startup building and how to pitch their ideas.
This week-long program will introduce your kids to these principles in a fun and interactive way and have them solving real problems. As part of the course, students will be introduced to building prototypes, websites, apps and even 3D modelling. Armed with this information they will be placed into groups of 3 and given the opportunity to create their own startup. Parents and family are invited to attend the Pitch session on the afternoon of the 2nd day.
On top of these critical entrepreneurship skills, your children will also learn how to turn their 3D design skills into working Augmented Reality prototypes, learn the fundamentals of programming (both in software and hardware), and create their own websites.
