      SUMMER CAMP - Tampa Bay: Startup Skills Made Simple For Kids, by AlligatorZone® Academy

      AlligatorZone® Academy’s Summer Enrichment Workshop 2019 returns this summer in Tampa Bay Area after successful runs in the past two summers, as well as successfully running a series of game-based and project-based pilots in after-school enrichment programs. Content: This is a 'Launch & Learn' workshop, which presents startup skills made simple for kids, to give children an opportunity to embark on a joyful journey of doing something cool for their community, while developing a personal brand. It is never too early to start investing in entrepreneurial leadership skills training and gently guiding innately curious children towards getting prepared to build a body of work of which they can be proud. The 2019 Workshop’s Goal:  To teach skills to launch a change-making project or product and start building one's personal brand. In this workshop, kids will develop fundamental skills to execute on projects based on their own areas of interest -- something that contributes to making their world better. These will be entrepreneurial initiatives which they can start and continue working on long after the workshop ends, thus getting started on a pathway to building a body of social-impact work that could help their personal brand throughout their school years, should they wish to pursue it seriously. Further, the entrepreneurial-skills they will learn along the way, such as communication and cash-flow management, are skills that will come handy, no matter what their career path or calling may be in future Method of Instruction: This is a practical course with real-world activities to launch an initiative that they care about. We will be using games, discussions, storytelling or activities to communicate complex concepts, when they are not actually collaborating in a team or working solo on their project, and helping one another out. Given the compressed time for the workshop, it will be fast-paced, busy and an enriching experience. Eligibility: This workshop is for ages 10-15, and ideal for students of all creative disciplines (including those in the Arts, Crafts, Writing, STEM, STEAM and beyond), who make things or want to explore their interest in making things that people need. Event Duration: One week, from Monday, June 17, 2019 to Friday, June 21, 2019, starting 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Laptop: Students may want to bring a wifi-enabled laptop along as the venue may not have computers. Students who do not bring their laptop will have to share one, as all the work in progress will be stored in the cloud. Tuition (after adjusting for a scholarship): ($595 minus a $200 scholarship) = $395.  Separate credit card processing fees apply, or mail a check for $395. The tuition has been subsidzed with a generous scholarship for each student participating in the workshop, by our sponsors listed below. Payment mode: Pay online (separate credit card processing fees apply), or pay by mailing a check for $395 to the address shown at the time of registration, under 'Other Payment Options' on the checkout page (see screen-shot below).
