Innovation Ex is an afterschool enrichment program available to students in grades 1-4. Following a club model, Innovation Ex will meet weekly from October through March and students will collaborate and creatively problem-solve while working on Innovation Pursuits (IPs) led by a session-mentor.
Innovation Ex meets on Tuesdays, from 3:15 p.m.-4:30 p.m., and is broken down into four 4-week sessions. Each session will have a specific focus and be facilitated by a “Session Mentor.” Possible session topics include a focus on the arts, mathematics, robotics, etc.2016-2017 Session Dates
