October Project X

What is Project X?
For Students, it is:
  • an inquiry afternoon of activities with a given focus
  • working across grade levels
  • faculty and upper school students supporting the activities (developed by a voluntary team of LS and other Harley faculty)
  • all participants gathering in the Centrum for a 'kick-off', then heading to designated areas for exploration
  • activities driven by creativity, passion and choice
What is Project X?
For Faculty, it is:
  • each of the four days a different group of LS teachers, other Harley faculty and US students assisting/mentoring the LS students
  • all other LS teachers meeting in cross grade curricular discussion groups
  • curricular discussions driven by creativity, passion and choice

Project X is a win-win experience for everyone.
