Early Entrepreneur Class
The Early Entrepreneur Summer/Fall 2014 Class was a tremendous success. The Cade Museum's Junior Staff members began this summer with the creation of a new business- SWAMP CHALK- and started production in June. Then in August students from the Innovation Academy at the University of Florida joined our Early Entrepreneur students to further develop the business with packaging, marketing, and sales techniques. The class culminated at the
2-day Gainesville Fine Arts Festival where the students SOLD OUT all of their custom sidewalk chalk. We are so proud of these students and all they have learned and achieved. There is much excitement for the 2015 Class!
Winter/Spring 2015 Classes Now Available!
The Cade Museum website is now featuring the class descriptions for all classes beginning in January! At the Cade Museum for Creativity + Invention, all of our classes and programming are developed with STEAM in mind. STEAM is an acronym for fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Our class descriptions provide information on which fields of study within STEAM are emphasized during the labs.
Classes range from "Acids, Bases, Art," where students will learn how to make alkali indicators and create paint, to "Fling It Fly It Float It! Wings Meet Wheels," where students will learn all about Newton's three laws of motion. Make sure to check the website for a full list of classes and to sign up today!
