Sure, our days will be packed with engaging activities, dreaming, engineering and plenty of games. But we know some down time is important, too. As our day begins (7:30-9am), students will have time to warm-up with individual activities, reading and small group activities. Then, after lunch, we’ll take some time to relax before we resume our action-packed explorations. Finally, we’ll end the day with a bit more down time (5-6pm) where students can again work on individual or small group activities, read or play STEAM-based video games.
