On November 13 the Taylor High School advanced marketing/DECA students visited Blair Moody Elementary School's second graders to work with them on an entrepreneurship project, sponsored by Global Entrepreneurship Network.
This is Global Entrepreneurship week: To help promote the topic of entrepreneurship our marketing students did a lesson with the second graders on what entrepreneurship is, and why it is so important.
The second grade students were given supplies and worked in groups with the high school marketing experts to create an innovative new product that they could market and sell.
The DECA idea challenge started this week and the mystery item is paper clips. Schools around the globe are taking part in creating new uses for paper clips and making videos to display their ideas.
Special thanks goes to Erin Micahelis (a DECA alumni) for allowing the students in her classroom at Blair Moody and to Principal Michelle Hernandez, for allowing access in her building.
The students had a blast and we cannot wait for future projects with the schools in our district.
