Chelsea Milling Company CEO Howdy Holmes: The Entrepreneurial Story of “Jiffy Mix”
Dinner: All food served will be from the Jiffy Recipe Book
Hands on Lesson-Thinking Inside the Box: In this hands-on lesson, students will learn how to create a three-dimensional box out of a sheet of paper using geometry and the engineering design/redesign process. Simulating the packaging design that Mabel Holmes did for the original box of Jiffy Mix, they will then package a product to market the latest in toys.
