Winter 2019 IMPPosium
December 10 @ 5:45 pm - 7:30 pm
How can we unleash the initiative and creativity inherent in all children? How can we harness middle school students’ desire for independence while supporting them in learning what it takes to reach a goal? How do we create an environment in which students can explore their ideas as well as the critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, systems thinking and other 21st century skills they will need to succeed in life?
For middle school students, Acera’s answer to these questions is an approach we call Inquiry, Making and Passion Projects (IMPP). Developed and refined over several years, our IMPP program provides students with the freedom to generate their own projects and experiment (and sometimes fail and iterate) with different essential skills while also providing the scaffolding it takes for students to not get lost in possibility, stay productive, engaged and increasingly able to actualize their goals.
Family and friends are encouraged to join us for this inspiring, student-focused event that offers guests an up-close view of Acera students’ creativity!
