Sixth Grade students had the chance to run their own community for a day with the annual trip to BizTown. JA BizTown is a simulated city located in St. Paul. Students prepare over several days to become adults at the experimental learning lab. Students learn what it takes to run a successful business, to manage their own money, and work as a team. Through lessons and hands-on acitivites students see first-hand how what they learn in school can be applied to the "real world." Leading up to the trip, students applied and interviewed for jobs and the business CEOs and CFOs prepared to lead their businesses for a day.
