This term 5th Class started the Junior Entrepreneur Program. The class talked about what it means to be an entrepreneur and researched Irish entrepreneurs.
We then came up with ideas for our own product or service.
We had a lot of fantastic ideas!
After we discussed the different ideas we had, we split into 5 groups and developed 1 idea per group. In our groups we made posters and prototypes of our products to show to the Kilternan Dragons during our Dragons Den.
In December, we had our Dragons Den - we were nervous and excited! Three local business people came into our classroom and we presented our ideas to them. We all did a fantastic job at presenting and answered all of the tough questions the Kilternan Dragons threw at us!
The Kilternan Dragons!
Presenting our ideas!
The Dragons spent a long time discussing and deciding which product would be best for us to create for our JEP project - they said they were all fantastic! When they told us which product they thought would be the best for us to do, we were all really happy! You will have to wait until after Christmas to find out what it is!!!
After Christmas, we will start designing, manufacturing, advertising and selling our product. We are all looking forward to the next step of the program!
