"Research says [experiential learning is] essential, [and] parents, teachers, and children say so too. We’ve all experienced the boredom of flashcards and worksheets. We have also relished the thrill of digging into an exciting project with a team of friends – brainstorming, inventing, collaborating, discovering. In this way, learning was an adventure that was active and endless. During those learning experiences, we discovered our talents and developed passions that shaped the way we live our lives."
