  7. Shark Tank Returns to...
Eighth grade students at Algonquin Middle School presented their business ideas to a panel of judges during the 5th Annual Shark Tank Project today!
Students worked on the project for a full day on Monday and presented to judges in the Preliminary and Final Rounds today. Students created an invention and developed a company with a business plan. While sharpening business acumen, students also learned to better work in a collaborative setting and conquered the challenges of presenting in front of peers and adults.
Each Social Studies class produced a Preliminary Round winner. These nine groups were narrowed down to the Top 4. At the end of the day, the Top 4 groups presented to the entire 8th Grade class and a panel of judges from the Averill Park community.
Congratulations to Convenient Colors, Smartz, Spritz, and Armadillo! You represented the 8th grade in the best of ways.
Special thank you to Aimee LaLiberte of My Virtual CFO; Adam Stewart, AP Board Member & Chief Technology Officer of Acoustic; Meghan McGarry, AP Board Member and Commercial Insurance for Risk Strategies Corporation; Ben Farber, Corporate Attorney for Phillips Lytle; and Jeff Bender of the Bender Family Foundation for sharing their time and expertise with our students.
