The School: Friern Barnet School

Year 9 Students at Friern Barnet were excited about taking part in the Chocolate Challenge. Located in Haringey, Friern Barnet are in their fourth year of working with Enabling Enterprise.

The Challenge: The Chocolate Challenge

Year 9 students were set the challenge of designing a new chocolate brand. They had to use their imagination to come up with lots of creative ideas, and conduct market research to find our which ideas were most popular. They used this data to decide what their packaging would look like, the flavours of their chocolate and the target markets. They then used their maths skills to create 3D nets for their packaging, and work out the volume of their boxes and how much chocolate they could hold.

The Results:

The day concluded with a presentation of their ideas. Teachers commented on how impressed they were with the student’s determination, maturity and enthusiasm. Every group managed to show how well they had worked in a team and how well thought out their ideas were. The groups were so impressive, it was difficult to choose winners. Nevertheless a winning group from each form was chosen to compete in a final pitch to decide who would win an amazing trip to a top central London business.

What they said:

  • “It is really good to see teams of children who are usually quiet be so chatty and open up.” – Teacher, Friern Barnet School
  • ” I loved it! They loved it! It has been amazing! This is the first time I have seen every single student completely engaged.” – Teacher, Friern Barnet School
  • “We enjoyed today so much. Our team stayed in at break to work on our brand. I wish we could do this every day.” – Student, Friern Barnet School

Well done to everyone who was involved.
