Local Community Cheers Orlando Science Center and Orlando Chamber of Commerce for its Commitment to Youth and Entrepreneurship

Program Launches this Fall at Orlando Science Center

ORLANDO, Fla. (July 11, 2014) — The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), Orlando Science Center and Orlando Inc. (Orlando Chamber of Commerce) announce plans to launch the YEA! program this fall.

YEA! is a groundbreaking educational program that takes students in grades six through 12 through the process of starting and running a real business. Students work closely with local business leaders to cultivate and research business ideas, write a business plan, pitch their plan to a panel of investors (think "Shark Tank" meets "The Apprentice" meets "American Idol"), obtain funding, develop their brand, participate in a trade show at the end of the year, and actually launch their enterprise. Through the YEA! program, kids 11 to 18 years old start as students and graduate as CEOs. They learn to make a job — not just take a job.

On July 4, our members celebrated our country's birthday at the annual 4th of July Member Celebration!

Decked in patriotic garb, members participated in activities including face painting, a patriotic light show and bubble-making on the terrace. They also made s'mores using a solar oven, launched "Alka-Seltzer rockets," and witnessed what happens when you mix Diet Coke and Mentos (hint: think the-soda-version-of-fireworks)!

On June 21 and June 22, Orlando Science Center hosted the next installment in the Young Maker Workshop series. Kids learned the basics of Arduino programming, using this open-source electronics platform to create interactive projects. By programming an Arduino to perform a number of tasks, they were able to power LED lights and servo motors.

Once a month as Maker Faire Orlando approaches, the Science Center is hosting Young Maker Workshops. The idea is to engage your little one in Maker-inspired activities with local professionals, while children and families work together to build and collaborate.

The Young Maker Workshop series will be offered at the Science Center on select weekends in Dr. Dare’s Lab. No registration is required. These workshops are included with paid admission or membership to the Science Center.
