Ashley Greenway - Elm Street Elementary
“Sugar Kids Beauty Scrub” might sound more like a solution to a complexion problem than a way to teach engineering and entrepreneurship. Allen Distinguished Educator Ashley Greenway engages her first graders at Elm Street Elementary in Rome, GA to create and manage this business by integrating aspects of entrepreneurship and engineering. She takes her students through the entire business model, from product design to market analysis and product research to development, budgeting and promotion. Based on the enthusiastic response, her model is being adopted in other classes across throughout the elementary school.
