VC Innovates is collaborating with the Aspire3 Program as an option to incorporate an industry based project into the pathway curriculum.
The Aspire program is a six week project-based entrepreneurship learning course aligned with the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. The program is adaptable to the classroom and scales to a variety of grades and subject areas.
The curriculum was collaboratively designed by a group of entrepreneurs, educators, business and community leaders to engage students with relevant needs and task them with creating solutions through science, technology, engineering and business.
The emphasis is on creating student engagement and buy-in through self-directed learning. It culminates in a performance based assessment that is delivered at the classroom, school site and citywide levels in a competition with students from the greater Ventura County community.
