The jobs of our future are unknown, and therefore it’s more important than ever to nurture and teach students critical skills and behaviors of entrepreneurs: creativity, opportunity recognition, self-motivation, adaptability. Entrepreneurs are opportunistic collaborators who learn from experimentation and failure along the way.
Uncharted Learning entrepreneurship curriculum provides true engagement in a learn-by-doing, real-world setting. Students learn and apply business start-up practices and concepts to projects they’re passionate about. They build, test, learn, apply – embracing the cycle of experimentation, which is core to entrepreneurship and great training ground for life — they get comfortable with failing and learning from failure. Working in teams and being supported by a dynamic mix of teachers, coaches, and mentors, all translates to deeper learning and skill building. Leander ISD offers a pathway of student entrepreneurial experiences: freshINCedu (Elementary), mxINCedu (Middle), INCubatoredu/ACCELeratoredu (High).
Students learn how to:
- Collaborate with a Team
- Apply the Cycle of Experimentation to Find Solutions to Complex Problems
- Speak Confidently and Persuasively
- Leverage Curiosity and Creativity to Drive Solutions
