Inspired Learning Day Design Challenge - February 9
Are you ready for an Inspired Learning Day Adventure? On February 9, all schools in MURSD will participate in a district-wide design challenge. The Inspired Learning Day (ILD) Design Challenge will take place from 9am - 11am on 2/9. Students will work with their advisory groups to design solutions to a zip line challenge. They’ll have the chance to design a solution, test their prototypes, and compete against all other advisories in the school.
Sponsored by Tree Top Adventures, the ILD will be a fun and active way to explore the MURSD Portrait of a Learner. Nipmuc students will also have the opportunity to visit other MURSD schools in the afternoon in order to support the learning of our younger students in this hands-on STEM challenge.
