We’re living with a generation of lost Einsteins - at least, that’s what research coins them. Many students do not actualize their innovation tendencies due purely to lack of exposure. For many students, the words “entrepreneurship” or “invention” or “intellectual property” simply aren’t entered into their vocabulary during their academic years. This is alarming when we consider that the future of work depends on creative, innovative, and entrepreneurial students. In this session, we’ll explore the next frontier of education: entrepreneurship education. A dynamic vessel of experiential education, entrepreneurship levels the playing field for all learners and provides dynamic, real-world context to any subject area or grade level. We’ll explore the foundation of eship edu, its infusion in STEM subjects, and its influence on student engagement and academic enrichment with tangible takeaways and resources. Heck, you might leave with a side hustle yourself.
