Children are always creative and think of new things that they could imagine and invent. What if you had a chance to make one of these ideas? Something that could help people out or a really clever idea? And, on top of that, make a little money and grow into a real business? Well, the IDEA class is the class to take. The IDEA class is a brand new class that made its debut this school year and is open to sophomores through seniors. It really gives students a chance to be creative, while thinking of something that would benefit them and others, with a product that was thought up in the classroom.

IDEA isn’t just a class, but it is also developing something that could grow it into a business, and even change your life. The class is considered an honors course, but anyone can apply to take it. The only requirement to get in is submitting a 2-4 minute video on why you want to be in the class. Then groups are chosen, and the journey to success begins.

There are many groups and a whole lot of good ideas. One of the exciting ideas is called Dorm drop. Dorm Drop is a monthly subscription box for college kids that need some basic things while at college. The cool thing about this idea is that it applies to the 20.4 million people that attend college every year.   Zack Gustafson(12) said,”Kevin, Auggie, and I are going off to college next year, so we had college on our mind. Kevin’s mom sends care packages to his sisters, but it is often hard and time-consuming, so that is why we created Dorm Drop.”

Your IDEA could be anything, but it needs to be done by the end of the year because you get to present in front of real investors that might want a piece of the pie. This class is the real deal. The students just had a mid-year pitch in front of some investors that could give them money.  They did this presentation just to make sure they have prototypes done for the final show at the end of the year.  IDEA student Chris St. Ledger(11) said,”This class is pretty cool. It’s a new class, so I thought I would try it. It’s really cool, and I feel like I can be creative and do what I want.” IDEA is new and a great new opportunity, so if you are interested in starting a business, and having a bit of freedom to be creative, then this class is recommended and will bring back all the childhood ideas and inventions and perhaps bring them to life.
