Home Newsroom First-ever Innovation Showcase to Highlight Cutting-edge Barrington 220 Courses

Barrington 220 School District is known for its innovative approach to teaching and learning, including programs like Business Incubator, Fresh INC, Project Lead the Way and Mobile App Development. New this year, many of the district’s innovative programs will be on display for the first-ever Innovation Showcase Tuesday, May 23 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Barrington High School.

Enjoy viewing the capstone projects from our Project Lead the Way engineering students and checking out the mobile applications created by the BHS Mobile App Development classes beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Starting at 7 p.m., at least one group of Barrington High School entrepreneurs from the school’s Business Incubator class will have their dreams become reality during the annual Pitch Night in the BHS Auditorium Tuesday, May 23 at 7 p.m.

The course is believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, and has gained national attention. Created by company Uncharted Learning, the class is now being offered at more than 50 high schools across the country. Taught by a certified teacher, students learn from how to develop, market and launch their own companies with help from volunteer business mentors and coaches.

The May 23 event will feature a handful of student groups representing the most promising companies developed this school year. The teams will pitch their ideas in a format very similar to the ABC show ‘Shark Tank’ before the Incubator advisory board and a panel of investors. At least one group will receive full funding to start their company. Student groups have earned as much as $25,000 in previous years.

Barrington 220’s entrepreneurship curriculum doesn’t end at the high school level. An elementary course known as Fresh, INC is now taught to fifth-graders to give them an understanding of economics and entrepreneurship on a smaller scale. Some of the fifth grade entrepreneurs will also be showcasing their products at the Innovation Showcase on May 23.

Formed in 1973, Barrington Community Unit School District 220 educates over 9,000 students at one high school, two middle schools (grades 6-8), eight elementary schools, and one early childhood center. District 220 encompasses 72 square miles in 4 counties and covers 12 villages: all of Barrington, Lake Barrington, Tower Lakes; and portions of Barrington Hills, Carpentersville, Deer Park, Fox River Grove, Port Barrington, Hoffman Estates, Inverness, North Barrington, and South Barrington.
