Each child will work on a team and create a business that they can develop and share with others. In this course, students will get into small groups, according to the businesses of interest, come up with a plan of what they would like to sell and create a budget. They will fill out an application, elect Vice Presidents (of marketing, finance, publicity), and elect their CEO.
