The project is a collaborative effort between the Academy’s Center for Entrepreneurial & Global Studies (CEGS) and science program evolving from a forest management project on campus. The grant will be used to cover the start-up costs associated with manufacturing the end-products that the CEGS students are creating from the forest: baseball bats, picture frames, and maple syrup.

Now that the project is well underway, students in the Web design class are contributing by designing a logo and a page on WMAcademy.org to highlight the project. Gayle says, “In my ten years of teaching Entrepreneurship, I’ve never seen an idea or a project ignite excitement in students and the community in so short a time as this one has.”

November 2009 Alumni eNews
This fall entrepreneurship students and biology students have been collaborating on The Global EcoLearn Projecttm. The biology students have been preparing pretreatment forest product inventories on two study sites on Academy property, and students in the entrepreneurship class have contributed by designing products for WMA families and Alumni. As a first project, the class has designed personalized baseball bats for sale. The first bats will be available in mid-January.

The Global EcoLearn Projecttm has been a way for the students to get first-hand experience in establishing and maintaining a business and to learn that nature and commerce can co-exist. In early November, entrepreneurship teacher Gayle Hsiao applied for a $3000 grant from the Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education that she received at the group’s annual conference in Austin, Texas.

Biology and Entrepreneurship students work together news article

Students in Mr Ekness’s biology classes are preparing pretreatment forest product inventories on two study sites on Wilbraham & Monson Academy property. Each of the two study sites will have timber harvested in two different ways. One section of each site will be clear cut and another portion of each study site will be selectively cut.

Mrs. Hsiao’s entrepreneurial studies students are evaluating the timber products that can be made from the various types of woods that will be harvested. Students are given an active role in assessing and determining possible management options and how to use the school’s resources.
