Inquisitive Design and Technology-2 School Hubs

The Inquisitive Design and Technology Program offers students from grades four to seven the opportunity to learn through investigations supported by effective use of technology. The philosophy of the program is one where students focus on developing solutions to real world problems that are meaningful to them and related to the curriculum. Students will come together as a cohort group / class approximately 50% of the time and learn at a distance through technology tools during non-group time. This program will be offered at Drinkwater Elementary. Click here for more information.
