Sharing Course Guide and Project Platform

Tuesday, August 16, 2016 - 1:49pm

Over the summer, AAR team worked together to build a scalable infrastructure for the 2016-17 program, which has expanded significantly since last pilot year. Internally, students will follow curriculum outlined in the course guide through weekly meetings. Externally, students will be guided by their mentors as they work on their project. Our first meeting with students begins next week at both Gunn and Paly.  During this meeting, students will go through program orientation and introduce themselves to their mentor using our Google Site platform. On this platform, each project will have a designated private site to be shared within the project team. We have a mock project site available for parents, mentors, peers, and community members to preview.  We are excited to get started!
