"Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil." — Bishop Reginald Heber
Mrs. Edwards' class participated in a Shark Tank Project to show off their marketing skills!
This is what Mrs. Edwards' had to say about the project:
"Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors endured a rigorous course load while enrolled in their Marketing classes at East Wake High School. In collaborative groups, they created tangible products and applied the 4 marketing principles of Product, Place, Price, & Promotion. It was all worth it in the end as they presented their innovative inventions to a panel of guest judges, Shark Tank Style! It was an epic event that challenged their problem solving skills & engaged their public speaking abilities. Not to mention the FUN of bringing their projects to life and the value of knowing they can achieve anything they put their minds to."
