ConnectTaiwan is a new project this semester that aims to teach children in Taiwan about the basics of business both locally and around the world. The students that are chosen to participate in the program will form groups and create a product or service that they then must successfully promote and market in a fair at the end of the project.
Currently this project is in its beginning phases. As of now we are working on writing a “business plan” to describe how the program will work. This plan will include lesson plans for each week that we will Skype with the students. After the business plan is complete we will run a quick trial run of the program ourselves.
We are aiming for the Spring 2014 semester to begin the first session of the program with the students in Taiwan.
