NSU Partners with Ice Cream Shop to Create Fun Entrepreneurial Program for High Schoolers

ice cream program

There’s nothing better than enjoying ice cream on a hot South Florida summer day. Now NSU is giving a group of local high school students the opportunity to make their own. The Department of Writing and Communication at the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS) is offering a FREE weeklong Ice Cream Entrepreneur Program from July 31 to August 4, 9a.m. through 12p.m. daily for high school students with an interest in communications, advertising, business, branding, and public relations. The program is intended for, but not limited to, high school students entering their junior or senior year in fall 2017. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 20, to allow for focused attention and personalized support.

Student teams will spend four days of the week learning how to create and launch a new ice cream flavor in partnership with Yo Mama’s Ice Cream shop of Fort Lauderdale. The program will be held at NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus (3301 College Avenue, Davie FL 33314) and on-site at the ice cream shop (901 Sunrise Lane, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304). On the final day, students will deliver an oral presentation pitching their ice cream flavor to a panel of judges. The winning flavor will have the opportunity to be produced locally by the shop.

CAHSS created the program as a community-led experiential learning opportunity for high school students interested in the field of communication.

Students enrolled in the program will:

  • Receive a certificate upon completion
  • Work with NSU professors and business professionals to develop their product
  • Advance their creative skills in advertising, branding, and oral presentations
  • Practice experiential learning and critical thinking in a college setting
