The 5 Saturdays Program empowers students with a curriculum focused on learning powerful life skills centered around agility using Scrum and Kanban, as well as career-focused skills in technology and business.
Students experience learning in a collaborative and project-based environment. They are exposed to careers in technology and business and are 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. Additional life skills are taught, such as creative and critical thinking, effective communications, and agility using Scrum and Kanban.
