Last week, the whole of Year 8 took part in the Mosaic Enterprise Challenge.The Mosaic’s Enterprise Challenge is an inter-school competition which encourages a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst young people. In addition to encouraging an understanding of business and enterprise, participants also develop a number of transferable skills such as confidence, team work, meeting deadlines, clarity of expression, lateral and creative thinking and flexibility and adaptability.
Students learnt about businesses, business principles and then applied them by playing an online business simulation game during which they produced, marketed and sold one of five products. Each team still has the opportunity to play the game as many times as they wish until the closing date of 12th February 2016. The team’s highest profit over all the games is then taken and the top five scoring schools are then invited to the Regional Finals.
Massive congratulations to team 3 which has the highest net profit of £12,262,271 but this could all change. Good luck to all teams.
