Merion Mercy Academy students in the Economics & Entrepreneurship course participated in an innovation challenge.
This fall, Merion Mercy Academy introduced a new dual enrollment Economics & Entrepreneurship course in partnership with the University of Delaware. The goal of the course is to equip students to thrive amidst rapid change by cultivating agile thinking and developing creative problem solving skills. Recently, three seniors in the course—Leila Sadoulet, Katrina Dominski, and Mackenzie Williamson—visited the University to participate in the Delaware Connect Innovation Challenge.
Merion Mercy students were put into groups with students from other schools and given a real-world problem to solve. According to Social Studies teacher Jaclyn Ozzimo '07, “All three students actively participated and represented our school well. Leila even got on stage to help pitch her group's idea to what was a very full room of participants.”
Along with Ozzimo, the girls were accompanied by Academic Success Coordinator Allison Kelly ‘99.
