Muir Lake has definitely been busy the last couple of days as over 130 of our students from grade 6-9 have been participating in Innovation week. Our student participants are working on their projects alongside other students who are working on projects of the same category. As I have wandered around and visited the different rooms (Technology & Research, Foods & Culinary, Science & Design, Construction & Mechanics, Art & Design), I am blown away by the students idea, creativity, and innovation. Every room I walk into is a room of engaged and excited students, passionately working on their projects. There are too many great projects to list here but some examples of these projects are hovercraft, protective vest for hunting dogs, bike generator, bullying awareness, social media Chrome app, website design, duct tape hammock, creating products out of recycling, scooter sled, snow bike, half pipe, fashion design, toothbrush invention that includes the toothpaste as part of the toothbrush and many more. Even as I write about this I am struck by the diversity of our students’ passions and talents.
We are really enjoying innovation week. We believe it is inspiring to us and other students. It gives us a chance to take time and think, and explore! We hope we get the chance to do it again, later in the school year. We have great enthusiasm. We already have planned what we will innovate next innovation week!! This is a great learning opportunity and experience! – Kamira & Hannah
