The School:

The Stonehenge School is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 7, 8 and 9 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test in their first Enterprise Challenge Day.


The Challenge: Business in a Day

Students became entrepreneurs for the day by competing in teams to set up a company designing and making merchandise for a chosen target market and event. Students needed to demonstrate that they were Working in a Team during their whirl-wind tour of business and set of mini-challenges. Students were also Being Creative when they formed their own company and designed a new range of merchandise and Problem Solving was paramount when they manufactured prototypes of their product. Teams were excited to promote their company through creating a logo and branding, and the challenge culminated with teams Presenting their new companies and then voting for the business and merchandise they liked best.
