Shark Tank design challenge in Pasadena

Shark Tank design challenge in Pasadena

As part of the Global Leadership program, our Pasadena students completed a Shark Tank design challenge.

Imitating the famous tv show, they became entrepreneurs, picking up a UN Sustainable Development Goal that they are interested in, they came up with ideas and made their business presentations to a panel of investors or “sharks”, who could decide whether to invest in their companies or not.

This way students started to design a solution to that goal and actually pitch their ideas to our sharks, which were from all over our Pasadena community. The sharks gave them feedback, and a winner of each leadership pathway was chosen. One for Global Citizens, one for Global Innovators and two for Global Entrepreneurs.
