What is the Learner's Showcase?

The annual Innovate RE-4 Learner’s Showcase celebrates and displays K-12 student projects empowered by curiosity, empathy, agency, iteration and collaboration. Inspiring students hone their skills in creativity, critical thinking and communication during the process of preparing for the Showcase with teacher mentors in order to tell their story of growth and learning in a culture of innovation at Weld RE-4.

Students are encouraged to submit proposals for their projects early in the year, and work to polish their public speaking & presentation skills weeks before the Showcase. The culminating 2 hour event features individual presentations, group projects, poster sessions, and a hands-on Maker Space Playground.

Who's invited?

Students, parents, teachers, family, neighbors and friends. Business owners, local organizations, governmental leaders and community members are encouraged to witness modern day learning that is preparing students for their future beyond high school.

What can I expect to see?
