(6th – 8th grade or 6ºPrimaria – 2ºESO)
ASB has partnered with Future Design School to bring kids together for a fun, high-energy week of problem solving and designing. This intensive one week camp challenges campers to “power on” their creative geniuses. During the week campers will be empowered to develop their creative thinking competencies as well as a host of other soft skills while learning how to find and solve a problem. The camp will empower kids to create, innovate and develop their entrepreneurial skills. Campers will uncover their own passion, build prototypes and pitch solutions that bring meaningful change to the world. Participants will learn repeatable design methods and get hands-on experience building a new business.
Developed with world-class entrepreneurs and educators, Young Innovators is unique, transformative and an amazing way to develop leadership and critical thinking skills. Throughout the program campers get hands-on experience with leading design methods taught by a team of passionate educators. Campers are mentored throughout the process, and are exposed to thought leaders through our local and global network of entrepreneurs. Through the design process participants will develop stronger confidence in themselves as creative entrepreneurs.
Participants will leave camp with a prototype of an app and a pitch to promote their idea. Family and friends are invited to attend Demo Day on the final session date to watch their children in action pitching their designs.
All materials are provided, but it is helpful if students bring their own device for the best experience (phone/tablet/laptop are all OK. But don’t worry, a device is not required).
