Knowledge Week – Adventures in Space and Time

 

A very successful week of student engagement began with an Open Mic. Students spoke with great passion about mental health, the love for a grandfather, the difference a small act of kindness can make, and Bollywood, to name just a few.

The Sphero Chariot Team Building Challenge asked students to use imagination, collaboration and design skills.
