Almost Genius Book Hangout 11/11/16
The Almost Genius Deep Play Group discussed their thoughts on implementing a passion project or genius hour in their STEM classrooms. Kevin Brookhauser's book, The 20Time Project, has been a great help to our group in customizing the ways that our students can explore their own STEM learning interests within a traditional course curriculum. The video below is a recording of our group's recent discussion of this book and our progress in implementing 20Time in our classrooms.
