My First Business: Entrepreneurship
Do you know there is a 10 year old boy who makes over $1.0 million per year on his YouTube channel? Or that many of the current world billionaires started their first business before the age of 10? Are you aware that there are online stores where you can turn a hobby into a business and sell your handmade and craft products to anyone in the world? Your first business can be as easy as taking a passion, hobby, interest or idea and turning it into a real business that earns money for you!
While we can't guarantee you will become a billionaire, in My First Business kids learn how to take an idea and turn it into a business from designing a logo to creating a marketing plan to developing a financial plan, we will guide our students on learning the basics in starting a business, while incorporating social responsibility concepts.
My First Computer Game: Scratch Programming
Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations -- and share your creations with others around the world. In the process of designing and programming Scratch projects, young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. It is available for free at http://scratch.mit.edu
