This term, we are pleased to offer an Entrepreneurship experience as one of our enrichments to students in Grades Six through Eight. Students will learn about key business terms such as: Research and Development, Marketing, Valuation, Value Proposition, Disruption, Investment, and Return on Investment, to name a few.
