Breaking Ground: The Science of Startups
Let your classroom discover the science behind some of the
world's most prolific startups: from code to UX design.
February 2018 • New York City + Seattle
From the team that brought you the incredibly popular FrontLineCon, we’ve crafted a day that introduces business, marketing and even computer science high school students to the science that powers businesses from Google to Spotify. Learn coding basics, how to prototype a new product, what user experience design involves, and more – all from the people who make it happen.

How It Works.
We’ve divided the day into five modules. Each module will be taught by a speaker experienced in the given field, who will provide a quick introduction to each topic. These include:
1. Coding + computer science
2. Prototyping + product management
3. User experience design
4. User interface design
5. Data science (depending on location)
The introduction will be followed by a live demo, involving interactive portions with the student audience; and finally, students and teachers will be able to ask questions.
We’re offering special rates for school-affiliated groups (please see below).
Intrigued? We’d be delighted to welcome you to this unprecedented conference.
