Genius Hour in Action

We are nearing halfway through our first Genius Hour projects of the year. These first projects are called 'Lite 2.0' which means we are running them like a trial run. Students are required to have a passion project or something they are curious to find more about. The students must have these three elements to their projects...

  • a driving question (what can I learn about/how might I?)
  • research
  • be prepared to share their findings with the class
We have a real variety of projects on the go. Some are exploring coding while others are looking into food, art, the environment, movie making, endangered animals...the list is near endless.

In term two we will run Genius Hour again and the students will be expected to share with the whole Syndicate and parent community. Their projects will also need to have a purpose or an outcome that will positively affect someone other than themselves. 

Here are some pictures from last week's session:
