Teaching entrepreneurship in schools benefits students of all ages and backgrounds. As part of their iCREATE curriculum, Illinois Extension uses a self-created game to encourage youth to think outside the box and use unconventional skills.
Focusing on creativity, entrepreneurial characteristics, soft skills, and branding, youth learn how to apply them in one’s personal and professional life. This educational program is used in all grade levels and paired with the iDREAM courses.
As part of their hometown tour day, third graders stopped by the Marshall Library to learn entrepreneurship with Tiffany Macke.
