Sandburg High School woodworking students participated in a hands-on business experience by selling items at the Orland Park school’s recent music boosters craft show.
Students worked in small teams to decide what products to make, what methods were needed for efficient production and what measures they needed for quality control.
The students worked with teacher William Vasich to determine pricing and advertising for the craft show.
The students also worked shifts at the show where they interacted with customers, explained their products, answered questions and cashiered.
The program was part of the Successful Schools-Successful Students initiative to teach “real world” skills, officials said.
