New Tech High School students have organized a business fair they’ll host Wednesday as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The fair is open to all community members, but is especially aimed at middle and high school students who are interested in learning about entrepreneurship, according to organizer Kate-Lyn Edwards.

The school has partnered with Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business for the event, and business professor Brian Anderson will serve as keynote speaker. Graduate student Jonathan Schalliol will host a question-and-answer booth, and local and national businesses will have booths at the event as well. There will also be a drawing for a free, three-credit course at Ivy Tech Community College.

Anderson will speak from 6 to 6:15 p.m. The business booths will then be open until Anderson offers a closing message at 7 p.m. Following that, DJ Kabe will serve as entertainment for a social networking event from 7 to 8 p.m.

Community partners include IU’s Kelley School of Business, Ivy Tech Community College, the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce’s Franklin Initiative and community businesses.

New Tech High School, which opened during the 2008-09 school year, evaluates students on the basis of eight learning outcomes that measure success in traditional content areas as well as 21st century skills.
