Sukkah Design Challenge 2015 Video

September 24, 2015 by Alexandra Taylor (Faculty and Staff)

JPDS-NC students are engaging in Design Thinking! Since the start of the school year, students in grades 2-6 have researched problems, generated questions, collaborated with one another, brainstormed solutions, solved challenges and overcome setbacks as they sought innovative and practical solutions to real-world problems associated with building a sukkah. This iterative learning process invites students to build empathy, as well as to be open, curious, questioning, creative, and confident learners and doers. Click here to learn more about the Sukkah Design Challenge.
