The Tenner challenge is an enterprise type challenge that can be undertaken by individual students or teams in either the 11-14 or 15-19 age groups. As well as being a potential D&T activity or club it might also be suitable for tutor groups to work on. 

Students receive £10 to invest in creating, marketing and selling a product, all of which is done over a month. Funding for each teams £10 can be provided by the school or funding can be applied for from the competition organisers (limited availability).
