Rhodes State students to be filmed for reality-based documentary

LIMA — Rhodes State College students who are taking a teambuilding class will participate in a National Science Foundation funded documentary, “Student Entrepreneurs: A Reality-Based Video Series.”

For the project, students are being filmed Monday and a variety of other dates throughout spring semester by a Massachusetts production crew in “reality TV fashion” to teach others how to build a virtual enterprise.

Rhodes State was one of four colleges around the country chosen to be featured in this video.

The students are in teams to develop a business plan and will compete for scholarships. In May, their products will be pitched during an online live global trading day.

Rhodes State is a global partner of the Institute for Virtual Enterprise. The institute, based at City University of New York, is built on experiential learning that gives students the opportunity for activity-based learning in online simulated global business environments.

Colleges and universities from 20 countries are actively simulating businesses. Rhodes State is the only Ohio college/university participating.

The NSF is funding the documentary, in part, to highlight educational programs that infuse technology, entrepreneurial skills and experiences into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM classrooms.
