What is consumerism?
Consumerism is the act of purchasing products and participating in the capitalistic market. Companies market to different demographics to create and sell the most successful products.
I bet that you participate in this concept daily, whether that is from you buying a new pair of shoes or from purchasing lunch in the school cafeteria!
During your time here at CONSUMER BOOM, we are interested in learning about what products you and your peers are consuming and what products you want to create!
Your teacher will divide you into groups of 3 to 4, and this will be your team for your project! Create a shared Google doc with your group for taking notes and sharing ideas!
Together you will brainstorm, research, and create your very own product for our company!
