The children have had to come-up  with a new idea. Once they have done this, they must conduct market research. This information must be presented using Excel. They must build their prototype. 


They will produce a PowerPoint to explain their invention to investors. 


To let the whole school know about the product, they must advertise it, using a TV advert, a radio advert and a poster.


A spreadsheet will be used to show investors how profitable the product is.


On Friday 17th July there will be a Market Place, in front of he whole school. Every child will have 'Willows Pounds' to invest. The Company with the most invest will win.
