IMYC Exploration Unit 1

The IMYC Exploration is a critical part of our middle school programme at NAISR and represents the culmination of student learning at the end of our unit.  During the week of 15 - 18 October, middle school students participated in their first IMYC Exploration of the year.

Our new STEAM design room space was put to great use as students from all of the middle school came off time table to focus on self-directed projects. 

The IMYC Exploration is a critical part of our middle school programme at NAISR and represents the culmination of student learning at the end of our unit. As each middle years unit of learning centres around one Big Idea (a broad, universal or conceptual idea which guides all subject learning for the duration of the unit) students springboard from their completed IMYC unit to ‘explore’ their own questions, ideas and projects, and consider the conceptual Big Idea on their own terms. 

At NAISR, we find the Exploration a valuable opportunity to promote student initiated learning, to foster creative, design-oriented thinking, and to develop long-term working skills of cooperation and project management.  

Please view our photo gallery below to see highlights of the week!
