A structured, virtual entrepreneurial extension program to support High-Ability secondary school students in Victoria to build critical entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skills.

In partnership with Melbourne Innovation Centre, the program provides a series of five, 90-minute online modules. The program’s 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 In2Science STEM mentors to develop problem solving and execution skills, not currently 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.

Graduates from this program will have the opportunity to apply to our Student Start-Up Academy – Victoria’s only student business incubator.
