LEARNING AND LEADING THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Few of life’s challenges can be solved with a formula or by looking up the answer in a book. At School X, we get students out of their comfort zones and develop their creative problem-solving skills to tackle the challenges of being a person who positively impacts his/her community. The mission of our program is to teach and mentor young individuals to utilize their creativity and develop their entrepreneurial spirit to make a difference in our world, starting today! School X students learn the step by step process of starting a business, from conception to launch, learning entrepreneurial principles along the way.
During the school year, Space Academy is a unique and interactive 10 week long program. Teams of students form companies that compete to craft the most efficient launcher and lander, which reaches the highest altitude while simultaneously protecting the payload contents inside of the lander. These companies are able to invest in each other through a model stock market based on their perceived performances. Students will not only be exposed to the engineering design process integrated with business, but they’ll get their hands dirty while doing so…literally!
