Shark Tank BLASt

Students turned in the business plan portion of their presentation this week and it has been recorded in Dr. Siekkinen's grade book. They turned in their financial plan and it will be recorded in Ms. McKinney's grade book. Finally, they turned in the written script for their TV commercial to Ms. Richardson and she will record that in Language Arts. We will be spending an hour on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and all day on Tuesday and Thursday finishing our BLASt projects. This first part of the week will be used to build a prototype of their product. They should bring materials from home that they may need to construct their product. Lastly, they will be creating a print advertisement and filming their television commercial. They will be using their chrome books to film their commercials. Shark tank presentations will be held in classrooms on May 17. Final judging of the top 8 will be held in front of the whole team on Thursday, May 19. Times to be announced.
