Benjamin Franklin is quoted saying:
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
Three years ago, I wanted to find a way for my Biology 12 students to have a deeper understanding of the human systems. We started with one biology class, 15 projects and 2 grade eight classes.
This year we have grown to include: the Calculus class, Robotics and Biology 12. We also have community members and 3 grade 5 classes. I had no idea this adventure would turn into a great day of learning and all of our students interacting.
It is incredible to witness the power of learning as our GISS students teach and showcase their knowledge to the future graduates of GISS.
This has been an unique and enriching learning experience for all involved and will continue to grow in years to come.
