Check out our Blankner Bulldogs! 'Dough for Dough' Marketing Campaigns require Creativity and collaboration
We are so very proud of all of our bulldogs and the hard work that they put into creating their marketing teams. We know that you were so excited to sell and market your play dough to the school and we are sorry that the opportunity will be missed. However, we need to celebrate the successes that came from our marketing teams by getting to see the product outcomes. Find all the class commercials on the Blankner STEAM website. (Please note: the final commercials that were going to air on Btv are still in the hard drive of the BTV studio so please excuse any volume issues, they were fixed but are no longer accessible to us at the moment.)
The Podcasts are on website as well as Blankner Media Center's Canvas page.
Check out your class and other classes!
We were impressed by all of you and look forward to becoming marketers again!
In our third quarter STEAM challenge, students are learning to be Chemical Engineers. They will travel to Canada with VR goggles, where they learn of a fundraising idea that Michelle, a hockey team member with down syndrome, came up with to raise money for her team. Blankner students learn how challenging creating a PROCESS can truly be. Our students learn the importance of Product research to create a product that consumers will want to buy. They then learn about the different properties of playdough and the challenges that mixing those different properties together can actually create. They have to improve the PROCESS of creating playdough, so that the final product is a GOOD QUALITY of playdough that is able to be sold and consumers would want to buy. Blankner students then switch from chemical engineering to marketing. The students work as a marketing team to create a buzz about their PRODUCT (the playdough.) Students will work to name, create advertising, podcasts, jingles and commercials to all help sell their products. Each grade level will have a day that their products are sold to the school in late March. All proceeds go back to our STEAM lab to help fund our next engineering design challenge!
