The STEM Business
Plan Curriculum

STEM Education is a critical component of a complete, quality education curriculum as we prepare today’s students to become the innovators, entrepreneurs and job creators of tomorrow.  The FitMoney team has created a design challenge that gives tomorrow’s STEM Middle School (6-8) leaders the opportunity to critically think about and create solutions to address the current issues students and the world face today. 

How Can we Address Food Insecurity in our Communities?

Students will create a product (garden kit) to sell in order to provide neighbors the ability to grow their own healthy food.

Students envision a problem-solving product, build a business plan document and make the important calculations in a budget spreadsheet, which culminates in a Business Plan "competition" presentation. Through a socially conscious lens, students will draft a product design, and learn the critical elements to starting a successful business venture to produce, market, and sell the product.
