If you are ever in need of some education and inspiration, just spend some time with LPS students. They never cease to be amazing, and this was certainly the case at the Littleton High School “Personal Project” open house event at the end of March.
Projects covered a vast spectrum of interests. Students were ready to teach visitors about topics ranging from photography to coding to eyelashes to the “Pink Tax” to painting a moose (“‘cause why not?” said the student’s display board) to how to build a gas tank for a motorcycle.
Students in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program spent five months researching and working on a project of their choosing. On open house day, they set up their displays around the perimeter of two gymnasiums at Littleton High School, and there are so many that only half of the students can set up at a time. After a half-hour, they swapped. This gave every student the opportunity to see what their peers spent their time and energy learning about and developing for the months leading up to open house day.
It was a truly fascinating and inspirational open house! Click through some photos:
