On March 18 2010 Lehigh Carbon Community College hosted a workshop for high school business teachers and FBLA advisors. The goal was to not only educate the attendees on new ways to teach Entrepreneurship but to excite the teachers so they would go back to their districts and advertise our Entrepreneur Summer Camp for high school students. We applied for and were granted 6 hours Act 48 credits.
In attendance we had 40 attendees from 6 school districts. The evaluations were outstanding for all the speakers, and many of the attendees wanted to know when the next workshop was scheduled. One attendee volunteer to be an instructor for the summer camp.
Several attendees stayed after the workshop to discuss further techniques for teaching entrepreneurship and innovative projects.
The workshop was a hugh success, now lets just hope we get the high school students to come to the summer camp. We have slots for 25, I have 5 teachers and 1 coordinator.
