Activate

Activate is Future Anything’s flagship immersive, in-curriculum program that empowers educators to embed 21st Century Skills and build entrepreneurial mindsets in classrooms across Australia.

Run across one or two terms in your school, students identify and explore problems that matter to them, before using design thinking methodologies to ideate, prototype, develop and pitch their own innovative, scalable and sustainable enterprise solutions.

Future Anything’s flagship in-curriculum entrepreneurship program, Activate culminates a National Competition where the best student-led enterprises pitch for the funding and support to launch their ideas out of the classroom and into the real world.

This was my first year teaching Activate and at first I was nervous about having to “know so much”, but the lessons are so easy to follow and work so well that it was almost effortless to implement. It was enjoyable to teach and inspiring to see the outcome - thank you Activate - it was a great program!

Activate is an amazing program that takes students through a process that not only helps them to create a business idea, but makes them believe in themselves. The Activate program enables students to experience a world outside of school, and show them all the possibilities they can achieve.

I absolutely loved teaching the Activate program and can't wait to deliver it again next year. The Future Anything Team are fantastic and provide regular, valuable support. It is an amazing, innovative and forward thinking initiative that the students can really get their teeth into.
