Homestead School students to display ethical, environmental, micro-business projects
GLEN SPEY, NY — For the past three years, eighth-grade students at the private Montessori Homestead School have been developing entrepreneurial potential through their micro-business projects.
Each student over the course of the year develops a business concept, company mission, brand identity and then proceeds to develop a product or a line of products in line with those ideas. This year, the projects will be on display at the Homestead School’s open house Saturday, June 8 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at 428 Hollow Rd.
The students use a wide range of design software to create prototypes of their products on the classroom’s 3D printers and laser cutter. Representatives from the Homestead School say that the idea is to use materials that are ethically and environmentally sound—fair trade and organic whenever possible.
Over the past few years, students have designed a wide range of products including laser-cut lamps, night lights, cell phone covers and power chord organizers; handmade leashes and collars; soaps and skin care products; and teas. The students donate 70% of their profits to a charity of their choice. Students have raised more than $11,000 to benefit a wide range of causes including environmental protection, women’s rights, suicide prevention and animal rescue operations.
