The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center (EIC) offers a unique opportunity for students in ninth through twelfth grades to gain hands-on experience in entrepreneurship and innovation by starting a business, launching a product, or offering a service. Accepted students attend the EIC part-time each day with the opportunity to gain high school credit through two unique entrepreneurship courses or assist with a student entrepreneurial venture without earning high school credit.
Student entrepreneurship opportunities are limitless, but examples include:
- Offering a service, such as lawn care, babysitting, housecleaning, playing a guitar at events, pet walking, videography, or photography.
- Finding innovative solutions to problems that face people around the world, such as the lack of water or power in third world countries, dead phone batteries on camping trips, or a variety of social and economic challenges within our communities.
- Starting a business, such as a bakery, retail venture, or an automotive shop.
- Launching an innovative product, such as a specialized agricultural tool, an assistive device, or a new product for the marketplace.
