In November, a panel of four of Delaware’s brightest up-and-coming teen entrepreneurs convened at the Women in Delaware Innovation and Tech event at The Mill. Thought it wasn’t planned, all four teens – Megan Chen, Deborah Olatunji, Dorcas Olatunji and Riya Setty – had completed a Dual School cohort.

The ten-week project-based learning incubator, directed by University of Delaware/Horn Entreprenurship grad Zack Jones, helps high school students take concepts and develop them into prototypes, with many projects becoming a reality.

For a success story, look to Noah Rossi’s Ground Up Computer Science program for middle schoolers, which is now serving kids during the summer at several locations. Also, Megan Chen’s children’s book about implicit bias is available on Amazon.

The local program, founded in 2017, has been nationally recognized. Last summer, Dual School was named a T-Mobile Changemaker.

Applications for the Spring 2019 cohort, beginning in March, are now being accepted. The program is open to students from public, charter and private schools in New Castle County who are able to meet once a week at 1313 Innovation (in the Hercules Building, 1313 Market Street in Wilmington). The program also has cohorts for students at William Penn High School. 

Interested in the program?Apply to the Dual School or get involved as a mentor or business collaborator.
