We try to help prepare the participants/kids, a.k.a. BizKids, for real life experiences in a way that they may not realize they’re learning, and although they may think it’s “scary” they seem to end up having a lot of fun! We see this all the time when they record podcast episodes, and so, we decided to add another little activity, TankTalk presentations. TankTalk presentations had to be at least 3 minutes and could be about ANYTHING! They could present alone or with a friend or two. Gloria Heiss is passionate about literacy!
What is Biztank?
Students get exposure to the world of business through a stimulating and interactive career exploration program. Guest speakers explain the drive, hard work, the directions their lives have taken, their successes and of course, failures. BizTank consists of three unique 8-week seasons throughout the year, meeting once a week on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30 p.m. (dinner is provided from 6:00-6:30 p.m.) and is offered to Junior or Senior students at any local area high school. Not local? Livestreaming is also available!
