Projects Carried Out By Kids in Schools that Educate for Entrepreneurship

This page is a continuation of the Kids Initiate page. In this page, we write about additional projects of students, children, and youth studying the Israeli Entrepreneurship for Kids (EFK) program. Some of the projects are social while others are inventions, and they all give the children the feeling that they, too, can realize their ideas.

As part of the entrepreneurship studies, the execution of a project designed by the students is important and promotes significant learning, while understanding the entrepreneurial process, not only in theory, but in practice.

The role of teachers in the entrepreneurship process is to serve as mentors that encourage students, show them the way, and give them the knowledge to succeed as well as cope with the difficulties that arise during the entrepreneurial path both on a personal and practical level.

The technological initiative: Integrated washing machine
The young inventors: Sixth graders at the Hayovel School in Ashdod

A concept of children for a washing machine suitable for three types of laundry

Sixth graders at the "Hayovel" school in Ashdod, led by teacher Nili Arama, learn entrepreneurship classes.

The students thought of the need for young people wash their clothes. On the one hand, they do not have much laundry of the same type to fill the washing machine quickly. On the other hand, they want to wear clean clothes.

That's why came the idea to prepare a model of washing machine, which in one wash can wash without destroying three types of laundry: colored, white and towels.

The safety project: Airbag for the student's chair
The young inventors: Sixth graders at the "Hayovel" School in Ashdod

Invention of children chair for student with an airbag

The entrepreneurial students are familiar with the phenomenon in which children swing on the chair and sometimes fall back.

These falls can end in disaster, especially if the falling student did not have time to stop himself and finally hits his head.

To prevent such injuries, students thought of installing an airbag in the back of the chair. So, during the fall the pillow will swell and protect the student's head.

The project: Bottle of shampoo and conditioner in common
The young inventors: Sixth graders at the "Hayovel" School in Ashdod

Bottle of shampoo and conditioner in common

While washing their hair, the young students use the shampoo and then the conditioner.

In order to make it easier for them, when they walk and sleep outside the house, they would like one bottle. In which one side being shampoo and the other a hair conditioner.

After looking for such a product and not finding it, they decided to develop one on their own. Like the one in the picture.

The environmental initiative: Planting plants in public areas
The entrepreneur children: A green initiative group in Be'eri school in Netanya

The social initiative: Mentoring first grade students
The entrepreneur children: Children aged 10-13 who participate in the entrepreneurship course in China

A social initiative of mentoring of first grade students

The Entrepreneurship for Kids Program is also taught in China.

Children aged 10-13 from china who participate in a entrepreneurship course in the Language School initiated an educational and social project, for the school's community.

The group of the young entrepreneurs planned a special mentoring seminar for the future first graders who are joining the school, in which the older and experienced students aid the younger to acclimate in their new school, share with them practical tips, and give out a special advice notebook that they designed and wrote themselves.

The Technological Initiative: Alarm that sprays water
The entrepreneurial Group: Children aged 10-13 who participate in the entrepreneurship course in China

A venture of chineese kids - Alarm that sprays water

The children thought about problems that annoy them, and one of them was how hard it is to wake up with the ring of the alarm.

One of the ideas that arose was to develop an alarm clock that also sprays water on us, so that those who find it hard to wake up in the morning - will wake up easily.

The young initiators programmed an alarm clock which contains a function of spraying water using the Arduino program.

The educational initiative: Mini Park World
The young entrepreneurs: Participants of the entrepreneurship course in China

Child entrepreneurs set up an educational project - a mini park world

The group of entrepreneurs, participants of an entrepreneurship course in China, thought of an idea for an educational initiative meant to illustrate the different geographic areas around the world.

The project's mission was to allow curious tourists from all over the world to be exposed to different places around the world, in just one place.

As part of the project the children created a model of the park, which resembles four distinct geographical areas: Ocean, Desert, Forest, and Polar.

The children built a simulation room which enables a peek to how the place will look and what activities it will contain.
