Blackville School Students Pitch Products to Local Entrepreneurs at Maker Faire

Les McLaughlin

The Grand Opening of Blackville School’s Makerspace was a huge success for the ICE Centre’s young entrepreneurs and teachers on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.

Students from all grade levels were able to take a tour of ICE Centre, testing out new technology and viewing many of the products made and sold by Makerspace students.

During this time, students participating in ICE Centre courses were given the chance to pitch their products to local entrepreneurs. Devon Underhill was recognized for his outstanding pitch for his company “D&M Designs” at Recognition Day. 

The public was invited to tour a student-run market filled with booths of clothing, buttons, 3D printed objects and even a self sufficient fish tank. 

The sales from the market totalled over $1700. Garett Donohue and Denver Donovan were recognized for making Top Sales for their clothing company “Devoh.”

Calvin Keenan and Patrick Donovan were also awarded for their Top Display for their company “108 Wear.”

Students from Mr. Ashley Hallihan’s Entrepreneurship class were excited to talk about the event and many of the guests present.

“It was a lot of fun and we got to meet people from 99.3 the River, CBC News and entrepreneurs from NBCC,” said Sarah Vanderbeck.

Kiefer Crawford also mentioned a particular guest that struck his interest. “One of the guests told us we could be able to get our Drone License at NBCC in the future, or take the course online,” Kiefer said.
