UpSchool Student Challenges

UpSchool Student Challenges

Experiential, transformative programs developed to provide F-10 students with a framework to build valuable life skills including teamwork, resilience and independence.

Program overview

Through hands-on, experiential learning journeys, students will develop enterprise skills and an entrepreneurial mindset – essential tools to successfully navigate an ever-changing world. Following key self-reflection and team building projects, students are thrown into the process of navigating the entrepreneurial journey – brainstorming, prototyping and building solutions to a problem.

Delivered at our purpose-built entrepreneurial training facility at Ormond College, students get a glimpse into their future lives at university and beyond. The programs maximise links to the Australian Curriculum and are facilitated by Wade Institute expert entrepreneurial educators, and mentors. Each program, from our 1-day challenge to the 5-day bootcamp, is designed to be flexible and be tailored to your school’s needs.
