Program Goals

The program is based on three goals; 1) broaden their scope of knowledge about a variety of topics; 2) encourage them to be active and take the initiative in their own learning and 3) learn to work in a team and individually to prepare and present their knowledge and work to others.  The curriculum is divided into units of instruction that encourage the students to become active in researching their topics, questioning their findings and drawing conclusions.  Hands on projects are often part of the learning and team work is necessary to finish most of their tasks.
