Support Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Wayland High School!

With summer vacation rapidly approaching, the last thing anyone wants to think about is the upcoming school year. Thankfully, the WHS Entrepreneurship and Business Management (EBM) team has got you covered! Get a jump on school supply shopping for the 2015-2016 school year with the Number Tube, a student-built pencil vending machine! Led by Mr. Moody, EBM students have worked throughout the school year to create this fun and innovative way to make an otherwise boring purchase. Customers can follow a few easy steps to receive a mechanical pencil from this unconventional machine: 1. Purchase a code from an EBM student 2. Enter the code onto the machine?s keypad 3. Be amazed as the pencil jumps through a series of tubes before landing in its basket! Customers can choose between two unbeatable deals: 2 pencils for $1 or 7 pencils for $3. You won?t see Staples offering those prices anytime soon! Codes for purchasing pencils will be valid throughout this school year and the next. Please direct all questions and comments to number2ube@gmail.com.
