They are exposed to careers in technology and business and provided learning experiences in Agile topics such as Scrum, which can be used to tackle complex projects. These are important skills that can help students now and in the future.

The 5 Saturdays lean creative thinking is a pathway for innovation through the art of storytelling. I believe we were born with the ability to think creatively.
