With each student working in a team of 5-8, this programme sets students four main ‘missions’ surrounding the context of building a product focused business. Each mission is designed to test team work and independent thinking with the aim of meeting specific briefs: market research, forming a strategy, prototype development, branding, promotion and public speaking.
Students are given a number of different materials during each mission to put together their business plan and create their product to a cardboard prototype stage.
Before the Grand Final presentations in the final hour of the day, students a taught a number of Presentation Survival Skills designed to enable even the most nervous to give public speaking a go!
Students must utilise and practice a range of soft skills (taught as the ’employability skills’) throughout the day, ensuring that their team produces the best overall business pitch in the Grand Final of the day.
