As part of the project, the seniors will have to put their findings in a report and make a presentation to an outside group like the Rotary Club. That is likely to take place between now and mid-January, when Stohs’ marketing class concludes.

The students say the project has taught them a great deal about marketing, and project management.

“We’ve also learned about how to be professional when we’re dealing with businesses,” Stark said. “We’ve really tried to sound like we know what we’re doing.”

Perhaps more important, the students have learned the value of putting down their cellphones, even for a little bit, they say.

“It’s been good for us,” Heise said. “It’s made me more aware about the time I spend using technology. It’s good to take a break and have some face-to-face time.”
