The first business & entrepreneurship Crash Course event was held this week to tell incoming high school students how to get involved in the B.E. program. The officer team explained the purpose of each facet of the program, including TedX, BeCon, Podcast, Oeconomia, DECA and CareerConnect.
Speakers outlined the focus of each program, how to get involved and how to become an officer. The Crash Course also highlighted the benefit of involvement in each of these areas, and how they offer students endless opportunities and more exposure to different industries and fields.
At the end of the event, the officers held a Q&A session to allow students to talk more in-depth about programs they were interested in and ask questions about how they could become more involved.
“I really liked how they explained the different opportunities for each event and that really interested me and got me wondering how I could contribute to each separate program,” said William Chen, grade 9. Fellow freshmen Tina Zhong noted, “Everyone explained the events and the program really well.
Overall, the event was a success in introducing underclassmen to the myriad B.E. programs Harker offers, and gave students insights to the industries and opportunities the B.E. department has to offer.
