Ready to Engage!

Students continue on the path to developing lifelong learning interests to not only problem-solve but to develop an appreciation of how things work while collaborating in a logical and creative way.

Each Learning Launcher Engagement Provides:

  • Engaging, hands-on, minds-on, project-based activities in STEM/STEAM and related topics

  • Applied technology to reinforce academics with real world learning and build next-generation skills

  • Student-centered, sustained inquiry activities with multiple challenge levels and opportunities for students to shape and expand learning around their own interests, abilities and learning styles

  • Connections to core academic content and alignment to standards

  • Extension activities for advanced learners to explore topics in even greater depth
