INNOVATION IS MORE THAN TECHNOLOGY
Innovative learning takes many shapes and forms in the classroom. In preschool, to innovate may involve building towers with oversized blocks or using the iPad Osmo® to create tangrams. In middle school, advanced science labs may explore chemical reactions to study bio-engineering hypotheses. High school AP Biology takes swab samples to study and compare effective COVID-sanitization standards. Technical Theatre classes build, fabricate, and design for real-world entertainment productions. Lower school STEAM days involve students in the engineering design process, helping them to work through new hands-on challenges each semester. They also engage in earth science field trips, cultivate the lower school garden, and learn laws of physics through aviation-science at Starbase. Watch the video below to learn how.
INNOVATION AT WORK
Whether it is learning design and fabrication skills in a high school costuming class or introducing the mind-stretching practice of cursive handwriting to second-grade students, innovation permeates the way we teach and learn at Mount Paran Christian School.
The Murray Innovation Center
The Murray Innovation Center - a 23,000+ square foot expansion of the Mount Paran Christian School high school building - offers innovative instructional spaces for enhanced programming and instruction for an enriched high school educational experience.
