PROVO, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A group of Brigham Young University students had 12 days to turn a rock into as much value as possible.

"We had a good time doing this. Creating some value," said Craig Darrington.

Introduction to Entrepreneurship professor John Richards challenged his students to create value from nothing. "I was scared at the beginning like how are we going to make this happen," said Jeremy Nedicott.

This group used Faceboook to increase value from a rock.

"Pretty soon it exploded. Our first picture we had with the sign and the rock we got probably about 5,000 views," said Jackman.

All that attention paid off. The rock turned into a box of cereal. It was traded for a sign depicting a man bowing to a woman called "chicks rule".

The group traded parts of the sign for a 52 inch large screen TV. Another part of the sign was traded for a sword. The sign also got the group an iron rite machine, which is used to take wrinkles out of clothes, a pair of size 18 sneakers, skies, a gas grill and chairs. The total value is over $500.

"It's just kind of surreal to think we got all of this just kind of random things from a rock," said Marissa Liu.

The group plans to sell all the items on either Craigs list or eBay. They're going to split the money between each of the four group members.

Two members of the group will give the money to Charity.

The other two are going to use the money to fund their missions.
