My student body reflects the unique diversity of the Hawaiian islands. My students are creative, driven free thinkers who appreciate the connections they experience in school as much as they appreciate the academic learning. My students have formed a tight community, as many of them have been in school together since kindergarten. They love to work, play, and create. My students are forced to be resourceful, which only nurtures their innovation. They are true trailblazers and I am proud to know them!
My project requires students to synthesize and apply what they've already learned about animals and habitats to design the Ultimate Animal. The Ultimate Animal is a prototype of a pretend animal made out of clay that my students believe could withstand the harshest conditions, live at the top of the food chain, and survive on minimal resources. The Ultimate Animal project takes principles from Stanford's d School and asks student's to apply past knowledge and research to create something completely new and innovative. The projects supports student's abilities to empathize, research, and create. Our class budgets are very small and clay is a big expense. Donations toward this project will inspire and promote innovation in our school in a way that is not always possible.
