Pupils enter the dragon’s den
BUDDING business brains were put to the test during a challenge at Clevedon School.
As part of a Dragon’s Den-style contest, representatives from each of the school’s houses were tasked with inventing a new flavour of yoghurt.
Following a special launch event, pupils from each house spent a day at the factory of organice dairy businessYeo Valley to learn how yoghurt is made.
Each team was then given �50 to carry out product testing and market research before devising a new flavour of yoghurt.
The challenge culminated in anevent which saw each team pitch their ideas to two teachers, James Bowkett and Dave Owen, Graham Keating from Yeo Valley and Bill Smith from the exam board Edexcel.
During the pitch, they had to show a film of the work carried out throughout the task as well as a TV commercial for their new product.
