The SEE Economics & Entrepreneurship program during the 2012-2013 school year variously included approximately 800 students from fifteen Northeast Ohio high schools, who participated in a mini-course of study to teach students how the American free enterprise system works and the importance of entrepreneurship and innovation in the context of the global economy.  As part of the program more than 600 students participated in business plan development activities leading up to local high school business plan competitions and SEE’s Northeast Ohio business plan competition.  The twelve finalists and the five first place award winners in the Spring 2013 SEE Northeast Ohio Business Plan competition were recognized at the SEE Program’s Year End Recognition Event held on May 23, 2013.


The SEE Science & Technology program included its Fall 2012 Science & Technology Forum attended by nearly 500 students, teachers and parents in which students learned from more than a dozen noted entrepreneurial STEM thought leaders about the wide range of STEM research and development activities occurring in Northeast Ohio.  Also as a part of the SEE Science & Technology program, 130 students participated in a science concept plan competition.  Five of those science concept plans we recognized as first place award winners at the SEE Program’s Year End Recognition Event held on May 23, 2013.

The “Introduction to the Innovation Economy of Northeast Ohio”  online course was first introduced at the Ohio Board of Regents January 2013 meeting.  The course was developed by Entrepreneurial Engagement Ohio with the cooperation of The Ohio Academy of Science and features more than fifty instructional videos authored by three dozen leaders of Northeast Ohio's innovation economy that are grouped into seven different content tracks.  People may view individual videos that may be of interest to them or view a larger portion of the course content if they want to understand the many economic development initiatives that will help determine the future economic prosperity of the region. 


Although best viewed on iTunes University via iPad or iPhone, the course is also available at and on YouTube.  The iTunes U site features additional reading materials, assessment quizzes and the ability to print out student quiz results if a student chooses to use the course to obtain high school or college course credit.
