Description

Presenting The Future Academy

65% of today's children will end up working in jobs that do not yet exist (source: US Dept. of Labour). While some people find this statistic daunting, it is an unprecedented opportunity for today’s youth to create a rewarding future for themselves and for society as a whole. That is where The Future Academy comes in. This accelerated innovation program will empower ambitious youth to design innovative solutions to the wicked problems that Generation Z will have to solve some day.

Participants will participate in a series of workshops inside and outside the classroom that will help them develop the ability of thinking in a creative, innovative, entrepreneurial, and tech-forward way. More specifically, participants will:

1. Imagine how today's technological developments will end up impacting our society 20 years down the line.

2. Design and build an innovation that tackles a problem in today's society, all while keeping the impact on the future in mind - a great opportunity to explore LCC's Fab Lab!

3. Pitch their ideas to a panel of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists from some of Montreal's most distinguished companies.

The Future Academy is a day-camp open to students between the ages of 10-16. The camp will take place between June 30th and July 5th at Lower Canada College in Montreal, Canada. Visit http://bit.ly/futureacademy for more information!
