Jewelry Biz and 3D Modeling

Camp was held June 9-13, 2014. Please check back next spring to sign up for this youth summer camp.

Start your own jewelry business in a week! This unique camp helps youth  take their creative business ideas from concept to reality through project-based, hands-on activities. Using CAD 3-D modeling software, campers will translate their design ideas to a working prototype and then create a business plan to market and sell the jewelry they've produced. They will have the opportunity to visit Ivy Tech’s design technology lab and use a 3-D printer to bring their designs to life.



Lemonade Day is a fun, free, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. In partnership with Monroe County Government, the City of Bloomington, and the Boys & Girls Club, the Gayle & Bill Cook Center for Entrepreneurship  co-sponsored Lemonade Day in Bloomington on MAY 3, 2014. Each child who registered for Lemonade Day Bloomington received a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook to teach them the 14 lessons of Lemonade Day, such as creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community.To sign up and for more information visit www.bloomington.lemonadeday.org
