Entrepreneurship begins early in Overland Park, Kan.
That's where high school students may spend half of each school day their junior and senior years in the Blue Valley School District's Center for Advanced Professional Studies. They do research, invent things and develop businesses. It is probably unlike any high school program you've ever seen.
"We treat these kids as if they were professionals with college degrees," says Donna M. Deeds, executive director of CAPS. "They have the same software, tools and equipment."
