STEM students learn what goes into operating an international business

Another fun and eye-opening STEM field trip! From Secondary art teacher Mr. Hicks:
“I just wanted to share our very successful and enriching trip to International Towne. At International Towne, 6th, 8th and 8th grade economic students learned the importance of global interdependence by visiting different countries. Students take on the various responsibilities involved in running international business as well as learning about various cultural business norms, supply and demand, foreign exchange rates, trade tariffs and much more.
