A one-of-a-kind class in Neenah got some real world experience on Wednesday, pitching to investors for real funding.

The first year class called Incubator EDU resembles the ABC show Shark Tank.

Students are divided into groups and need to create an actual product to pitch.

On Wednesday, students pitched products to a committee to get seed money for their ideas.

One group pitched an idea for a GPS tracking device to help users find missing items.

"You can put it on cars, pets, animals, instruments, whatever, you name it; backpacks, purses. We just wanted something that helps anybody find what they needed to," said Marcus Coiley, a senior at Neenah High School.

The school is the only one in the state with the program.
