Meaningful Economics


Faculty Advisor(s):     Kristin DeGregory


Teams of students in grade 6 participate in a competition highlighting economics, entrepreneurship, and personal finance.  Teams participate in a written test; a production activity in which teams organize their members efficiently to make as many products as possible; and a problem-solving activity in which the participants are tested on creating a good or service to address a problem. Finally, the teams prepare a marketing strategy that is presented to a panel of judges from business and education professions.  Meaningful Economics is run by UD’s Center for Economic Education & Entrepreneurship.
