Taking Science to Market

Taking Science to Market Entrepreneurship Workshop for Classrooms
This workshop for classrooms explores the entrepreneurial side of science and the necessary steps to turn an invention into a profitable product. It encourages participants to think outside of the box and problem solve towards creating a new product and/or service.

Taking Science to Market includes an in-class, interactive activity called "Invention Convention" where students learn the process of generating, protecting, and marketing their scientific discoveries.

The workshop materials consist of a PowerPoint presentation, colourful brochures for the students, and handouts that outline the course content.

Invention Convention is delivered through the CBDC (Canadian Business Development Centre) "Students in Business" representatives, located throughout the province. Upon request, a representative will come to your classroom and conduct the 2-3 hour activity with your students.

They will have lots of fun and gain valuable business knowledge!
