SAN MARCOS, Texas – On Friday, November 30, 2012, Project FEED, one of the free enterprise clubs within the Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) program, will be hosting an event called FEED City at Mendez Elementary. This will be a one-day event in which third grade students will have the opportunity to learn about various career fields.
This expansion of Project FEED teaches children how to be successful entrepreneurs. They will be learning the laws of supply and demand, financial responsibility, market research and a host of other skills necessary to successfully compete in the global marketplace. The city consists of a bank, a courthouse, the police station, a retail store, the globe, the McCoy’s math station, the profit puzzle, a voting booth, a recycling station, and the Global Gurus Competition.
Each store offers hands on experience for students to learn about financial responsibility, the principles of ethics, numerous career fields, and how to be successful entrepreneurs. In addition to Project FEED, SIFE conducts many other projects that help develop entrepreneurial skills.
