Nationwide — Zandra A. Cunningham, teen entrepreneur of the artisan skincare line Zandra, girl’s rights advocate and philanthropist, has announced the launch of the ‘Science Behind It’ STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math)-based immersion program for high-schools, encouraging students to explore basic business skills and experience skin care product formulation through a hands-on workshop series. Additionally, they will compete in a Shark Tankstyle competition using their business plans and flair to pitch their ideas and build a mock business
“STEAM education helped me to create and build an award-winning company. Our focus on nutrient-rich natural skincare products involves multiple chemical principles to achieve the best formulas, requiring a good knowledge of how to apply science, tech, math, and creativity,” said Zandra, the 17-year old CEO. “With that knowledge, I went from making lip balm in my parent’s kitchen to selling my products in stores across the nation. I’m excited to work with schools and organizations to introduce students to the opportunities that a STEAM education can offer.”
The ‘Science Behind It’ workshops series will include innovative STEAM classes that will show students how to formulate their own personal care products such lip balms, toothpaste, facial masks, hair & body butters, skin scrubs and more. The series will be conducted over several weeks or in one session depending on the organization.
Zandra has been sought after nationwide to share her business journey and entrepreneurship secrets to success. In response, Zandra launched the Young Mogul Prep School – an entrepreneurial training platform that guides students through the key stages of business development.
As part of the Young Mogul Prep School and under her non-profit charitable arm The Zandra TLC Foundation, Zandra created the ‘Science Behind It’ STEAM-based immersion program to help middle to high-school students turn their own dreams of becoming a teen CEO into a reality.
