K-12 Education

The K-12 strand is where curiosity and creation converge. Educators will identify an inquiry focus to deepen exploration of classroom content and/or skills. Through purposeful design, educators work collaboratively to create an opportunity for authentic exploration, collaboration and creation of student products to be executed in the classroom.  Ultimately, teachers wear two hats throughout the week: student and teacher.
