Some students from IPS Center for Inquiry 327 became business owners for just one day Monday.

The 4th and 5th-graders paid a visit to Biztown.  It was set up at the Gene Glick Junior Achievement Education Center on the north side.

The students interacted with each other as part of a virtual main street and learned what it takes to succeed in a business community.

"Today was just a really good thing and this is going to help me out with my different life and help me grow and I’ll be able to learn different things later on,” said Allen Johnson Jr., Biztown Mayor.

The students also learned about personal finances by operating a checking account.

Biztown is put together by Junior Achievement of Central Indiana and Huntington Bank.
