Market Day

Market Day is an authentic project-based learning experience which enables students to work in groups to design, produce and sell a product or service of their choice at a one-off market day. With a focus on student-centred learning, Market Day provides students with the freedom to make their own decisions, problem solve, meet deadlines, prepare a mini business plan, relate to others and engage with their local community.
