Full course description
FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES
Family FlexFactor is a summer spin-off of our current FlexFactor program running in middle schools and high schools across Lorain County and surrounding school districts. In this program, students will be asked to work together with family members to identify a real-world problem, conceptualize a device to help solve that problem, develop a business model, and create a PowerPoint presentation to present virtually to a panel of judges who will provide feedback on their ideas. This program will include teamwork, business development, brainstorming, creativity, and much more. We will also enjoy a virtual pizza party* together as we kick off the event! And don’t worry . . . we will be there to help guide you along as we hold online workshops and check in on your team’s progress throughout the program!
Because this is a virtual event, you will need the following to participate:
- A reliable internet connection and a device that supports virtual meeting tools!
- The ability to create a slide deck using PowerPoint or another presentation tool of your choice.
- Availability during the times listed in the agenda to ensure you can complete your project.
