Who Makes Marketplace for Kids Happen... You Do!
“Marketplace for Kids does a fantastic job of igniting the spirit of entrepreneurship in students. The activities are designed to help them become comfortable with change while learning to thrive on positive competition. Lessons, based on standards and benchmarks, help students develop the skills needed for recognizing possible entrepreneurship opportunities and then show them how to organize their ideas for development and growth of actual products. Marketplace for Kids helps to extend thinking skills and encourages risk-taking with forethought. It also teaches students how to use an integrated approach to designing products, which is absolutely relevant in today's global environment. But most of all, it makes learning fun, exciting and challenging!”
