Tech Prep's E1 BUILD Students Complete Their First Selling Event

Story by Jerell King Photo from

May 3rd, 2017 marked the day that Tech Prep’s BUILD team completed their first major selling event at the Friendship Tech Prep. This time around, all of our BUILD teams got the chance to sell the actual products that we have worked very hard to produce. Everyone sold products at the event and got the chance to finally make some money from all of our hard work.

Some of the featured products that were on sale included my “Insta-Laptop”, the STEM Fair winner that turns your phone into a computer; the “Snack Jack” and the “Snack Up”—two devices that will revolutionize the world of snacking, and many more.

Overall, I am proud of myself and the rest of the BUILD team for pushing through and completing our very first selling event.
