Genius Hour_ Project-Based Learning

Reimagining education for the 21st-century learner

65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in jobs that don’t yet exist.

It’s time to foster innovation, inspire creativity, and cultivate critical thinking—the skills our students will need to succeed within the twenty-first-century complexities of citizenship.
