Skills for learning, life and the world of work

Become a smoothie entrepreneur!

In this hands on and delicious full day incursion students are challenged to create a smoothie product and marketing campaign that promotes health and wellness in their community.

Working in teams, students discover what it takes to become a business owner. They investigate the preferences of their target market, design and learn about cost and profit before trialling their delicious and nutritious blends. Once they have the ultimate smoothie recipe, students use their digital literacy and design skills to create marketing materials to promote their product and brand.

Then it all comes down to The Pitch!
Which team has the skills to convince the panel of sharks (teacher judges) to invest in their company?

The Smoothie Bar is a highly activated day which focuses on students developing skills in teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, financial literacy, digital literacy, communication and presentation skills.

All reports from the class teachers (and the kids) was that the day was brilliant. I popped in a few times and the rooms were buzzing with excitement! In fact, we had a few visiting principals in on the day and they took our stock of MiniBOSS pamphlets.

Here's some student feedback also:

I absolutely LOVED The Smoothie Bar and Chocolate Shop it was such a great experience. The staff were lovely and I really liked how hands on it was. I would give both the workshops 10/10. It was really good doing surveys and budgeting. Thank you so much please come again.
