During the last full week of school prior to Holiday Break, Emerald Coast Middle School held an Entrepreneur Day.  Ms. Gerhardt's 5th grade math classes hosted the event. In an effort to expand the ideas of math past the walls of the classroom students were given the task to create, engineer and market their items for sale to their peers using classroom economy money. Students created prototypes and conducted market research to determine marketability and viability of their product. They were given a budget of 5-10 dollars to spend to create their products. Teachers and staff were invited to use "classroom economy money" provided by Ms. Gerhardt to shop as they browsed through the aisles of homemade engineered items created from things that would commonly be thrown away.
