Children learn best by doing. The Inquiring Minds partnership offers teachers an opportunity to move their classroom to a community site for a week of hands on, multi-sensory learning. Student learning is enhanced by meeting curriculum expectations through meaningful connections to the real world.
The deadline for submitting applications has past. It was a record year – 277 applications. Thanks to all the teachers who showed interest in these powerful learning experiences.
The good news we will have more weeks on more sites than ever before – 226 weeks in 12 different programs! Please feel free to contact site coordinators directly for more information about each different site.
