This year we selected 27 new ninth graders to participate in FATE. Over the last year, they have engaged in activities on business, entrepreneurship, design-thinking, problem solving, leadership, teamwork, and communication. And, just a few months ago they were put into 5 teams to work on their Grade 9 Capstone Project: A Marketing / Advertising Campaign for Merit. Each team was responsible for creating a 60 second commercial and a print advertisement. Then, with the help of local creative professionals from Woodward Original and Creative Circle, the students’ visions were brought to life.
