Genius Hour

6th grade is in full force with genius hour. This is a time when they can study anything they are passionate about. They have really been working on their research. Students had to create a driving question that can't be answered, then they had to create ten guiding questions that will help get them there. Many students have had a chance to speak with experts all around the world to help them with their projects.
