YOU have heard it before and you will hear it again.
It is because another whizz-kid in the mould of Steve Jobs will create something in his parents' garage and go on to be a technopreneur.
But if you need a little help to combine creativity and entrepreneurship along the way‚ take part in a New Straits Times' Newspaper-In-Education workshop next month.
The I'm A Technopreneur interactive one-day course for those aged 9 to 12 years old will help participants create a new idea for a prototype that can sell. Pupils can also have a taste of what it takes to be a chief executive officer.
Learn to translate ideas into outcomes at the Power of Thinking session for 13- to 17-year-olds.
Also develop inner strength in decision-making‚ learn leadership skills and boost self-confidence to head a team at the workshop held at Balai Berita‚ Kuala Lumpur.
