More than 200 students from Creek Valley and Sidney Public Schools joined together for Inventure Day 2020 to learn more about Entrepreneurship and Innovation on March 3 at West Elementary in Sidney. The fifth and sixth graders from both schools worked in groups to develop a new product based on inspiration from a widget they received at the beginning of the day. Once they had an idea for their product, they went through a series of stations to learn about Target Markets, Branding, and Finance. The students then determined the name, slogan, and logo for their product, before deciding their target market and price strategy. Each group of students presented their product idea and business plan to a set of judges, giving them an opportunity to gain public speaking experience. The Inventure Day 2020 program was made possible by a grant from the Buckley Trust and partnership with Creek Valley Public Schools and Sidney Public Schools.
