Imagine their final exam - as a vibrant student-led celebration - that applies course content into real world solutions!


Picture the entire community celebrating all your class knows and creates. Expect key facts from your lessons, as well as mind-bending insights about their awesome brains combine in innovations that catch learner interest at many levels!


Regardless of your middle, secondary or university content, students love to prepare and lead this celebration of innovation. In teams and individual guided tasks they engage fellow students and their wider community in course related applications.

All tasks here come flexible enough to cross any discipline. Or, if you wish to work with classes in different disciplines - integration works especially well in celebrations.

Students will each invite at least five guests to the exciting event and all guests are engaged at all booths to help apply course content as solutions to real world problems.

Originally this material was created for grades 7 through 12 who worked together, but it has been used repeatedly at middle secondary and university with amazing success.

Each task is designed to make course content applicable and relevant and the celebration allows students to lead innovation in realistic and refreshing solutions. This celebration results in passionate engagement of innovative possibilities from both students and their invited guests.

Rather than simply pitch innovative ideas, students leaders come armed with interesting and motivational questions to inspire diverse responses from others.

Expect this carefully guided celebration to generate a new enthusiasm for your course content and for the wonderfully creative insights that this age particularly enjoys in a unique learning environment.
