HOME SCHOOL EXPERIENCE - Tuesdays, January 31st to March 14th, 2023 - 9am - 12pm - BLACKSMITHING ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Over a period of (6) weeks, students will learn to forge small items to sell and then sell them. There will not be class during the week of Mardi Gras on Tuesday, February 21st.
As a class, they will be creating their very own small business! After doing a little forging for the first (2) weeks, they will dive into collectively putting together a small business. The final capstone experience will be when we set up a booth at the Fairhope Pier for one of the Farmers Markets Days.
Students will be learning and doing things such as:
- Performing market research to determine the right product to sell and at the right price point.
- Creating a marketing plan.
- Determining and executing ways to improve manufacturing processes.
- Learning to sell and about the selling process!
As a small business owner, I am super passionate about this class and really hoping to make an impact in the future of some young entrepreneurs! There will be some homework required.
The minimum age for this class is 12.
