Learning as unique as every student

2School provides opportunities for teachers and students to uncover curriculum through the unique lens of public education and the role it plays in our democratic society. The historical classroom serves as a base from which students explore past, present and future in the dynamic downtown community.

Ideas for inspiration could include:

  • Investigating identity and responsible citizenship
  • Delving into the history of Calgary and discovering innovations for the future
  • Interacting with the community
  • Exploring the impact of art, architecture and the environment

What They're Saying

Exposure to a university at such an early stage in their lives may motivate these children to pursue a university education in the future. Many of the children who participate do not come from homes where post-secondary education has been modeled. I expect we'll see some of these kids back here in ten years. I believe this is valuable learning experience and would recommend it for all students. Hopefully it will give them an idea about the various careers, and impress upon them the importance of studying and working to the best of their ability. They were very excited to come to the university and were surprised that there was more than one building. Making slime and playing in the gym were very special. Interviewing was very meaningful. Students were very interested in the art work and sculptures.
