The junior class has been very busy practicing their upcoming business presentations on Friday.
The junior project has two goals. First, to teach students project management skills, the phases involved in project management, and what it means to work with a team on a project. The second is to have them work through a project using project management phases. Their end deliverable is also in two parts. The first part is a trade-show like presentation to local members of business and industry of a sustainability idea which has local value. They will present their idea for seven to nine minutes in a trade-show environment complete with display, brochures, and a well thought out presentation. Each team member presents. The second deliverable is a project management portfolio which the teachers grade. This portfolio is a snapshot of each phase of their project from planning to team member evaluations.
