Allan A. Martin Senior Public School to host trade show
Allan A. Martin Senior Public School will host their International Business and Technology (IBT) Trade Show on May 7. The trade show will feature more than 50 student-designed business ventures centered around this year’s show theme Inspire. Greatness. Together.
“The IBT Trade Show is the culmination of two years of learning in the IBT program,” says Katina Paleologos, principal at Allan A. Martin. “It's an opportunity to showcase the varied and unique products that are the result of creative thinking from our young entrepreneurs."
Working collaboratively throughout the process, students develop a wide range of 21st century skills, including: business skills, marketing, personal management skills, sales strategies and social media networking techniques. The students’ projects also include a full business plan and marketing campaign for their ventures.
The IBT program is a regional program open to students entering grade 6. The program prepares students for the challenges and changes faced in the business and technology world. They are also able to build their skills in the dynamic arts and music program. To learn more about the program, visit www.aamartin.ca
