YOUNG entrepreneurs visited Minsthorpe Community College this week to create a new innovative box of chocolates.
Year six pupils from Carlton J&I school took on the Apprentice-style challenge to create the sweet-tasting product.
The youngsters were divided into teams and project managed by pupils from the college. Creating a brand, costing, logos, and slogans were all part of the task.
Their ideas included Olympic-themed chocolates Going for Gold and Chocolympics, Snap and Share and the winner, Hearteasers.
Craig Walton, teacher at the Minsthorpe Lane college said: “They did a great job and really went into a lot of detail when presenting their products. I was very impressed.”
The project was designed to give children a taster of what to expect when they make the transition to the college in September.
Mr Walton said: “It is the perfect way of combining ICT, numeracy and literacy skills while being a fun day for the pupils.”
