You can’t fail, so start practicing for success.
You work as student teams to create Pie Packaging and Marketing for our pies, designed to be sold in your community, with information on nutrition, calories for different portions. Teachers help by collaborating across disciplines, combining math, science, writing, and computer skills; using existing course requirements applied to a real-world project.
Once a year, all PIE schools participate in designing new pie recipes from scratch, continuously improve a pie recipe that works with your community. This is iterative design, part of entrepreneurship and engineering skills that can’t be taught but can be practiced. Iterative design is part of the Next Generation Science Standards required by most schools. More importantly, it’s a fun way to develop skills in engineering, entrepreneurship, and empathy.
