I didn’t know that learning could be this much fun” was a statement made by a student who experienced Live! Laugh! Learn! Genius Hour at our school. Grade 4 and 5 have Innovation Time in their schedule. Innovation Time came from combining Library and FabLab class and happens once every six days. Students unleash their passion, build on a concept, wonder about a topic, or come up with a new concept that they develop, create, iterate and present on during two trimesters. Attendees will get concrete examples of what worked, what didn’t work, what stood out and how we used experts and real audiences with our elementary students.
