Taking in the lessons from last year, we chose to focus on a theme of “How can we reduce waste at FCS?” while compressing the experience to one week (5 school days). With a deep breath, we introduced the week to eager students and then watched as they exploded in a frenzied fever of creativity, iteration and problem solving. It was an exhausting week but one of the greatest weeks of the entire year. It was an incredible experience.
“It let me push myself to see what I could actually do.
“It was really fun. I was never so frustrated, but I wish it could have lasted longer. I’m REALLY REALLY proud of my project and I was super super focused and I was able to get a lot done. It was really easy to write a lot about this because so much happened and I really wanted to share it.”
“I loved Innovation Week because it got me out of my comfort zone. I built a robot that cleans and before this week I would have never thought I could have built it.”
It’s hard to compress the passion, creativity and breadth of projects into a short response here but in summary, it was amazing to the see.
