  1. We have launched genius hour across multiple grades at our new school in Switzerland. Follow our journey. Thanks for all the interesting posts and stories which have been an incredible launchpad for our team.

  2. If anyone in New York State is interested in exploring how their Genius Hour could connect students … and teachers and families … with opportunities to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, please email me.

    This is such an astounding movement – three cheers for you all!
