It's always amazing when you can take a concept you've learned, and put it into practice!

After learning about Focus Groups from John Gruidl some time ago, the Entrepreneurs were asked to develop a focus group project on behalf of the @wimuseum to discover new ways to increase high school foot traffic in that space.

After planning their presentation, the students organized a group of their peers and led a fantastic discussion designed to minimize barriers and increase interest.

One solid report later, we are sure that the Western Illinois Museum will have useful information as they plan for their future expansion. Thanks for this great opportunity!
