At Google, employees are given 20% of their time to pursue a project they are passionate about. From this time products like Gmail, Google Drive and Google Sky have emerged. This type of forward thinking can be applied to education as well. An opportunity for students to immerse themselves into a passion project can lead to endless possibilities. This is a major project-based-learning assignment that spans an entire semester with a culminating presentation during the second semester, and encourages students to pursue a creative interest they would otherwise not experience in our academic program. The materials listed would go a long way to fully funding the passion projects for this group of seniors. They spend the majority of high school doing projects and assignments they're told to. This projects allows them to learn and work on something they WANT to. We have several groups using photography to create awareness or beautification of nature campaigns. One young lady is using art to bring awareness to tolerance in our society. We have a student creating his own horror film. One group of students are creating a recycling program at Glenvar by putting a recycling bin in every classroom. We have groups creating music programs at battered women shelters, making cheer bows with young girls in homeless shelters, and multiple groups using art to help older shelter dogs find a new home. Some students used this as an opportunity to promote a social cause while others have decided to explore a more personal interest. A group of young men are trying to create their own business by fixing old beat up cars for resale. The wide array of projects my students are working on shows just how unique each one of them is.
