A student project to use marshmallows as the soft building blocks of
 iconic designs has helped primary pupils see business as fun.

Bedford College Business Studies teenagers were tasked with organising
 a project which combined event management with commercial principles –
and they opted for the soft solution - marshmallows.
They delivered the idea to classes at various local primary schools including Shortstown Primary where the bright pupils tackled the challenge of re-creating the Eiffel Tower, Paris; The Shard, London; the Leaning
Tower of Pisa, Italy and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Others schools taking part were Scott Lower, Brickhill; Pinchill Lower, Felmersham and Cauldwell Primary in Bedford.
Ellen Punter, Schools and Community Liaison Manager for Bedford
College said: “We encourage local school children to think outside the
box about their educational and career aspirations. And, as part of those
partnership arrangements our students act as role models in a number of projects with pupils of all ages.”

The Bedford College students involved included Aaron Jeffries, Ellie Rogers, Travis Graham and Joe Newbury, Jamie Tookey and Darnell Williams.
