Enterprise City is a true-to-life city simulator where students work in business groups to create, market and sell real products to their peers. In the process, students learn dozens of civic, financial, and entrepreneurial lessons. Students work closely together throughout the entire process and will rely on one another to meet important goals.

Before students take a trip to Enterprise City, they spend 3-5 weeks in the classroom preparing by going through job interviews, creating business plans, learning about supply in demand and the role of government in a city, among other important concepts. The 3-5 week curriculum is aligned with the Common Core in English/Language Arts, Social Studies & Math and is intended for students in grades 5-8.

Take a look at this video to see what the simulation looks like in action!:
