Transdisciplinary theme: How We Organize Ourselves An inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on humankind and the environment. Big Idea: Economic activity relies on systems of production, exchange and consumption of goods and services but ultimately should be sustainable. Students will be organizing a proposal for a “Green Star New Business Grant” that helps provide funding for new businesses. The goal should be on creating a relevant, useful company that produces a product or offers a service that is realistic and contributes to bettering the human race and does not contribute to harmful or destructive practices that cannot be sustained into the future.  Students should first identify a need in the world that is original and new.  They need to research what goes into producing the product or supplying the service.  They must make a flow chart of materials and other practical needs to get their idea off and running, make a prototype, etc. to be able to pitch their idea.
