As a kick off to the upcoming Startup Experience workshop, Ross Baird spoke at an Upper School Assembly. The venture capitalist, author, and teacher discussed the power that the boys have to be entrepreneurs who both generate profit and make the world a better place. After the assembly, Baird met for Q&A and discussion with all the participants in the Startup Experience, an intensive two-day workshop during which teams of students will take a product or service from concept through development, culminating with a business pitch to a team of alumni businessmen and venture capitalists.
During the fall 18 boys Middle School studied engineering, soldering, aerial photography and FAA guidelines in the after school Drone Club. Led by Global Air Media founders Eno Umoh '04 and Austin Brown '05, over the course of eight week each boy built and flew his own drone. They took great pride in their work and, at the end of the session, got to keep their drone. Click here for a slide show of the boys at work. In the spring a new group will take over the Middle School's Innovation Lab after school.
