RipScene at Eden

Last Saturday, Penrice Academy’s Young Enterprise team, RipScene, attended the Spring Trade fair at the Eden Project competing with other Cornish schools. 

Mrs Hanton explains: “RipScene demonstrated their talents as young entrepreneurs and used their enthusiastic and effective sales techniques to gain customers.  The team received commendation from the judges on the efforts they showed towards changing and revamping their products.  The project has enabled the students to gain first-hand experience of setting up a business, including aspects of product design and development, marketing and finance.

I am delighted with the success of the team and am very proud of the dedication and perseverance shown by the group.  The competition is still wide open and the team are looking forward to the finals at the end of April!”
