In partnership with Melbourne Innovation Centre, the program provides a series of five, 90 minute on-line modules. The programs practical delivery model is designed to assist classroom teachers to better support High Ability students. Students will have a unique opportunity to work in small groups with experienced entrepreneurs and STEM peer mentoring by In2Science to develop problem solving and execution skills not delivered at scale within existing Victoria curriculum.

Students are presented with societal or market challenges with enterprise opportunities and need to develop rapid prototyping business model solutions. Using a range of tools and methodologies, students will work through the critical elements of Start-up and lean methodology theories and will be supported to develop solutions and receive feedback from real, potential customers.

This program is entirely on-line and available to high ability students in years 8-12 from Victorian Government Schools.
A blended version of this program will be offered to our partner schools in 2021.
