Help shape the next generation of entrepreneurs. Shark Tank eSchool is designed to create innovative thinkers. More than 8000 secondary school students have participated in the program. Now, it’s your school’s turn.

About the program

Shark Tank eSchool is a project-based learning program designed by Marketing Innovation Entrepreneurship Lab (MIELab). It’s delivered by teachers in the classroom supported by Shark Tank eSchool modules and Charles Sturt University. Students work their ‘big idea’ across eight modules. They will learn core skills, including creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork and communication. What’s more, knowledge, skill, and application activities also incorporate the Australian Curriculum general capabilities. Towards the end of the program, students will attend an exclusive masterclass with Charles Sturt University that will help the students develop their idea and pitch in preparation for the state’s showcase event.

Get set for your students to:
  • identify problems or challenges
  • generate solutions
  • design and test a prototype
  • build a business model
  • pitch their idea.
