The Eagle Express Print Shop is an extension of Tech Now here at Eisenhower High School that gives the students the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship first hand. The students design and produce all the products in class using Corel Draw, which is the program used in Tech Now. Tech Now is an entrepreneurship course that focuses on developing a career minded skill set using modern day technology. The Eagle Express has grown over the years with the addition of equipment and products provided by the Lawton Public Schools Foundation Grants.
The Eagle Express Print Shop has a 3D printer, 2 button makers, a T-shirt press, 1 color printer and 1 poster size printer, One Cricut maker, and 1 document binding machine. The students work in the print shop to fill orders as well as developing our EHS Eagle Pride product line. The students are exposed to cost analyses of our products so they can come up with cost effective prices for the products. The students have generated over $750 in sales which is deposited into our Tech Now account and used to replenish our supplies.
