Class Description

Genius Hour is inspired by a practice at the Google organization. Employees can use part of their work week to develop projects of their choosing which benefit the company. Using inquiry-based learning, students in this class will develop passion projects intended to make a positive impact on others. Teachers will promote, support and model creative, innovative thinking and inventiveness. We will provide students an opportunity to develop skill sets that are valuable in any learning situation (research, experimentation, collaboration, creativity, problem solving and critical thinking). Creating and contributing is the core principle where students will publish, design, act, make, or do. They will connect with teachers to plan, experts to gather information, peers to produce, and community members to establish a sense of purpose for their work. This is a time for minds to come alive!
