Innovation students had a chance to learn from volunteers at one of the world’s largest consulting firms, Deloitte, this Friday during their annual Impact Day.
As a part of our ongoing partnership between SEP and Deloitte, over 30 volunteers visited our math & science classes on Friday. Deloitte hosted an innovation workshop – describing the consulting industry, how it relates to social media, and impacts technology – and encouraged our students to think like consultants and become better problem solvers.
Innovation would like to thank all Deloitte volunteers for spending quality time with our students and making a huge impact here at our school!
On Thursday, April 11th, all Innovation students visited nearby colleges and universities, taking tours and learning about college life! Some of the colleges we visited include William Patterson, College of Mount St. Vincent, NY Film Academy, APEX, CUNY Queens, Adelphi University, Lehman, York, & more!
In March of 2016, Innovation embarked on its 6th annual Enrichment Week project-based learning program.
Over 400 students in 18 clusters engaged in true, project-based, experiential learning, in New York City and across the globe! Some highlights of the program included: Discover Brazil, Social Justice:NY to NOLA, Cycle Harlem, Conquer Spain!, Coding Virtual Reality, the REMIX project, and Innovation Music Recording Studio.
Congratulations to staff and students who conceived and carried out projects with great social, political and educational value, and that exemplified our core values of leadership, collaboration and social activism through Innovation!
