    INCubator program

    Join us in supporting this amazing learning experience for students.

    INCubator at LPHS

    Uncharted Learning is a nonprofit organization that developed the INCubator program, curriculum, and materials. Lake Park will purchase these resources when they launch the course during the 2020-2021 school year. 

    In the INCubator course, students engage in hands-on, entrepreneurial learning by developing a business of their own. The course culminates in a Pitch Night event, where students present their business plan in a “shark tank” competition. Winning projects will be awarded scholarships from our INCubator funding partners. The students’ classroom learning experience is enhanced by local business professionals who serve as team mentors and classroom coaches.
