In an era where technology is revolutionizing how we approach education, more and more high school students are becoming overwhelmed with the vast amount of options available. Project Icarus is a step-by-step video course that allows high school students greater access to a more enriching and fulfilling experience beyond the four years of high school, allowing students to spend less time worrying about their future and more time exploring their passions and interests.

Hi, my name is Harry Cheung and this is Project Icarus. Most high school students have no idea what career they would like to pursue. As many as 50 percent of students entering college do so without declaring a major. In an era where technology is revolutionizing the way we approach education, schools are simply not equipped enough to help students in the transition, leaving them stranded in an outdated system. That's why I’m creating Project Icarus, or Inspiring Creativity and Resourcefulness in an Unconventional Society, a step-by-step video course that allows high school students greater access to a more enriching and fulfilling experience beyond the four years of high school. Project Icarus is largely composed of an extensive digital library of resources, primarily focused on different aspects of high school life, enabling students to make more informed choices and unlock undiscovered potentials in life. The course is centered around the five key fundamentals of high school: Academics, Networking, Aspirations, Mindfulness, and Prospect. Through online availability, the course will be accessible anytime, anywhere in the world. Customers will purchase the course to gain lifetime access while advertising will be done primarily through social media and word of mouth advertising. Our generation has one of the most important decisions to make about the future of our planet. Project Icarus will help to bridge that gap, so they can spend less time worrying and more time focusing on what's more important. As a passionate student who has first-hand experience working tirelessly to improve the quality of our education, I can confidently say that I am one of the most qualified individuals to spearhead this initiative. We cannot change how the system works. We can, however, change how we shape our future. If you like this pitch, hit that vote button and share it with your friends. Thanks for watching.
