The Shark Tank eSchool activity is a one-day, face-to-face, train-the-teacher workshop delivered during the PASS Expanding School Partnership Professional Learning Program in Brisbane. This program unpacks what entrepreneurism is and develops the skills of entrepreneurial thinking and mindset. 

The Shark Tank eSchool program simplifies the entrepreneurial enquiry process starting with the identification of a student nominated problem, then systematically applies a set of integrated activities while working towards solving the identified problem. The program’s problem-solving approach can be applied across a range of STEM subject domains. To sustain post-workshop momentum and efficacy in classroom implementation, ongoing coaching is provided to teachers over the 1st semester of 2023 (for 14-weeks) via individual email enquiry support, phone-calls, Zoom sessions and WhatsApp engagement.  

Shark Tank was designed by a specialist team of experienced educators and entrepreneurs and captures the essential activities within the entrepreneurial process in an easy-to-understand end-to-end process. Shark Tank currently works with teachers and students in 150+ secondary schools in SA, WA, QLD, NT, VIC and NSW plus schools in Thailand and Vietnam.
