Uncharted Learning’s mission is to equip students with the real-world skills they need to say “I get it! I can do this! I know what I want to do with my life.” They help inspire them to discover their passions, strengthen their capabilities, and create their own futures.
These programs offer a unique and comprehensive mix of resources for schools to bring entrepreneurship to students. They offer evergreen, authentic, rigorous curriculum (both traditional and distance-learning resources), plus meaningful professional development and tools to ignite and involve your community.
The freshINCedu program provides a way for elementary students to be exposed to (and empowered by) entrepreneurship. Through the program students work in teams to develop a product, pitch their idea, and launch their business. The starting point for creation is reduce, reuse, or recycle which tends to inspire discussion and innovation around community involvement. The unit culminates in a pop-up marketplace experience where students sell their products. The classroom teachers collaborate with volunteer business professionals who mentor student teams, provide real-world context, and champion student efforts.

In mxINCedu, middle school students work in teams to identify a problem to solve, create a product concept, pitch the idea, and iterate based on market learning within the e-commerce selling experience. Local volunteers from the business community mentor and support this real-world learning experience. This program differs from freshINCedu in the tools and lessons provided. Students take on more complex analysis and evaluation of product ideas. Through this process, students discover interest areas that can drive high school and even career pursuits.
