The 21st Century Lemonade Stand

'Lemonade Stand: Business School for Kids' is aimed to equip 9 - 12 year old children with the fundamental mindset required to succeed in a fast moving century.

In an exponentially changing world, our education system is doing what it can to maintain pace, relevance and impart the skills required to prosper in the 21st century.

However, technology and business model innovation moves much quicker than the school system is capable of responding. As such, the very existence of jobs traditionally seen as ‘safe’ such as accounting is being questioned and today’s kids are facing an uncertain future in which they are likely to have several careers and up to 15 jobs.

Clearly, a capacity for personal reinvention and an ability to identify new business and personal growth opportunities will be of significant importance.

Collective Campus co-founder and program facilitator Steve Glaveski says that “kids are always asked ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ but perhaps we should ask them 'what do you want to create'?" Fundamental business skills will be absolutely imperative to success in the 21st Century.

Help your children learn the basics of startup building and how to pitch their ideas. This 2 day class will introduce your kids to these principles in a fun and interactive way and have them solving real problems.  As part of the course, students will be introduced to building prototypes, websites, apps and even 3D modelling.  Armed with this information they will be placed into groups of 3 and given the opportunity to create their own startup.  Parents and family are invited to attend the Pitch session on the afternoon of the 2nd day.

Lemonade Stand — Curriculum

What your child needs to bring


The kids will be using different online platforms for the workshop, so they will need a laptop computer. The laptop preferably shouldn't be one that uses a touch-screen as its main form of navigation - many of the programs your child will be using on the day rely heavily on mouse navigation, and touch screens usually do not give the best user experience. 

Writing tools 

Please have your child bring their pencil case containing pencils and markers for use throughout the program. 

Access to a Gmail address 

Some of our activities will include registering under an email address. If your child doesn't have an email, we encourage you to create one through Gmail. 

Tinkercad and Instapage Accounts

So we can spend most of our time teaching, we ask that you create a Tinkercad and Instapage account for your kids before class begins. When registering for Tinkercad please input their birthday as 01/01/2000. Please ensure your child has their log in details with them.

Packed Lunch 

Your child will be required to bring their own lunch (or you could take them out!) and snacks for 2 short breaks throughout the day. We will be providing refreshments throughout the day.

Got Questions? We've got you covered.

Are there any discounts for Lemonade Stand workshops?

To ensure Lemonade Stand is accessible to as many kids as possible, we run super-early and early bird specials in the weeks leading up to our classes, which offer significant discounts on tickets. We also offer group discounts for groups of 2 or 3 - so grab a friend or sibling and save together!

What is the age range for students?

Most of our students are between the ages of 9 and 12. However, if your child is slightly younger or older, that's fine as well! What matters more is whether they're comfortable working with other kids who are either slightly older or younger. As a general guide, our latest session had kids between the ages 8 to 13

How big are classes? Will there be adequate supervision?

We cap classes at 24 students. We have 2 lead facilitators plus volunteers. This means your child will always have someone looking after them and making sure they're keeping up and enjoying themselves!

I want to see my child pitch his/her idea!

Startup Pitches will occur on the 2nd day of the workshop commencing at 2:30 pm. The pitches will demonstrate how much your child has learned within 2 days and we'd love to have you and your family come watch and support!
