Why does innovation matter? Because turning new ideas into reality is one of the keys to driving economic progress and social well-being. During this 3-day seminar at the University of West Georgia (for ages 14-17), you'll explore how economic thinking and the entrepreneurial mindset can be harnessed for success no matter what career path you take.
What will you do? You'll gain practical knowledge and skills that you can apply to every day life, make new friends who are just as curious and driven to get ahead, challenge traditional classroom ideas with top professors and business leaders, and gain critical thinking skills as you tackle fun activities like Scavenger Hunt and the Trading Game.
At the end of 3 life-changing days, you'll have a memorable experience that you can add to your resume or college applications.
