Dear Friends, Here are some great opportunities to take advantage of this summer!

Real World Scholars EdCorp Entrepreneur Program

"What happens when a teacher has an authentic way to connect student work to the world outside of the classroom and the funding to make it happen? An Education Corporation (EdCorp) is born!"

An EdCorp is a web based, student-run business that operates right from the classroom. An EdCorp sells a product or service that students make in class to ignite student interest and learning in STEAM-based curriculum. Because all profits belong to the student stakeholders, they can re-invest it use it to better their school or community.

For those interested in the program, contact Audrey from Real World Scholars. For more information, click here, or download the PDF below!
