Students work together to develop a plan for stocking school vending machines. The plans include a selection of products that will maximize profits while meeting the snacking needs of all students on campus. The profits from the school vending machines will be used to to subsidize student activities, such as field trips, dances, and student events. Students identify products that qualify under federal law, survey the student body for possible demand, analyze price points, and propose a selection they believe will make the most profit while reaching the widest range of students.
Student teams give a presentation to the school board or key decision-makers. It outlines a proposal and rationale for the selection of new products for the vending machine to increase profit and appeal to all students.
