WCSA Idea Launch Pilot
We're working with a group of students and Mrs. Shannon Hammond-Pappazisis at WCSA ranging from middle to high school at WCSA. We're about half-way through our first 16-week program and thus far students have learned about some of their favorite business successes and failures. Students have researched start-ups, outlined business models, and have learned the process of iterating on their ideas.
For our next chunk of classes, we'll be learning how to use web technologies to make it easier to scaffold, share, and present our ideas to the world. At the end of our session, students will present what they've built at the WCSA Invention Convention.
At Curiosity Foundation, we know that creatives can't truly create unless they have the tools they need to make it happen. Many of the students we work with don't have access to that technology and school provided Chromebooks just aren't up to the challenge. That's why each student that completes our program receives a modern Windows laptop that's ready for them to design, code, and create.
