Our district has rebranded our GT showcase to now be called the IDEAS Showcase. IDEAS stands for innovators, designers, engineers, artists and storytellers.

Please have your student begin working on a passion project to share the first week of March (showcase date TBD). I would like to have our passion projects complete no later than Tuesday, February 28th--- we will have a check in February 1st to see the status of our projects and again on the 28th. This project is a long term extension activity for your student.

A passion project can be over anything, school appropriate, that your student loves and ignites a fire in their creative mind!

Examples (not limited to): Create a podcast or FlipGrid series. Write a short story or fan fiction based on a historical event. Conduct a science experiment with a hypothesis and findings. Build an interactive exhibit with both digital and physical elements. Tell an oral history. Do an interpretive dance over a significant event or concept. Take a series of photographs and create an exhibit that tells a story about your student's passion. Design or code a game based on a historical event or a work of literature. STEAM project. A cross curricular project of studying weather patterns or seismic activity of a specific location and creating graphs and charts to showcase their numerical data and also creating an interactive exhibit of what their phenomena looks like.
