Visiting the IDEA Summit, May 8, 2018
The district is providing an opportunity for students to visit the IDEA Summit at the Langley Events Centre for 1 hour on May 8th. We have busses scheduled to pick up classes and take them to the venue and then return them to their schools. During the visit, students will have the opportunity to
- purchase products from their peers in the Showcase Marketplace
- to participate in or observe the Design Challenges
- to learn more about the opportunities in our district around entrepreneurship.
Registration information for this opportunity will be coming to schools in early April. Parents and community members are also encouraged to visit the IDEA Summit.
IDEA Showcase and Marketplace Participation
Students selected from k-12 will have the opportunity to share and showcase their ideas and products at the IDEA Summit. In the Marketplace, students will also have the opportunity of marketing and selling their products. In addition, all students participating in the Showcase and Marketplace will have the option of participating in a Pitching Event . During this event, students will put forth their Success Pitch to judges who will share highlights of this event in the Finale Presentation.
How to Participate in IDEA Design Challenges
Schools will be receiving information on how to register students to participate in the Design Challenges in April. Their peers can cheer them on!
