One elementary school in Waco is combining technology with entrepreneurship during class time. Grades one through four are learning tools on how to start and run a business.

In one of the second grade classes, the students will "skype" on the computer, with a Waco entrepreneur to learn about how he started his business.

This class is starting a business selling sodas and water to the teachers, in order to learn how to run a successful business.

The second grade teacher, Ashley Crumpton, says "the benefits of teaching second graders how to run a business are to teach them responsibility. They each have to apply for a position within our job, and they have to interview with a teacher at our school, and then they have to be responsible for that position."

This is a new concept being taught in schools at this age, but teachers feel like it is never to early to start.
