Additional Information

Throughout this program, teens will use design-thinking methods and consider the WHY? Why does this industry or product thrive? Why do people interact or engage with brands? Through the lens of empathy and in partnership with their peers, participants will be challenged to consider an industry challenge, and work with employee mentors who’ll initiate solution based thinking.

Each day will integrate specific learning objectives accomplished in Project ECHO’s entrepreneurship and design thinking curriculum. Presenting a capstone project is an important element of the TIES program, and each student will get to choose one challenge that they learned about from either a Day of Innovation or present their own business plan developed in the Think Tank and present their project on the last day of the program.
