Guerrilla Marketing

Guerrilla Marketing

March 23, 2018

Guerrilla marketing is an unconventional system of promotions that relies on time, energy and imagination rather than a big marketing budget. Typically, guerrilla marketing campaigns are unexpected and unconventional. The idea is to create a unique, engaging and thought-provoking concept to generate "buzz" through unusual approaches such as:

  • Iintercept encounters in public places
  • Street giveaways of products
  • Public relations stunts

Innovative approaches to guerilla marketing now utilize cutting-edge, mobile digital technologies to really engage the consumer and create a memorable brand experience.

Inspire your kids to create and innovate! Join us for a new series of Saturday morning workshops based on the "Makerspace" ideology. What exactly is Makerspace? It's a place where kids learn by doing. Eager learners will be introduced to STEM concepts with a focus on engineering and design. They will complete hands-on projects to solve real-world problems. Makerspace learning turns knowledge into action!  The kids will exercise their creativity by building STEM-related projects using a variety of materials. Workshop topics will vary and rotate throughout the year, and will explore STEM-inspired topics such as:

  • coding
  • robotics
  • green screen technology
  • digital story telling
  • animation

Parents! You may either drop the kids off, or stay and get creative with us. For individual Workshop Topics, Fees and Parking Information, Times, and Important Parent Information, click on the Available Section button. To read more about these new workshops and the Makerspace trend, visit STEM Saturdays.
