I-Term 2024

That’s a wrap on I-Term 2024!

Students spent two weeks exploring the intersection of the passions and career pathways using the concept of Ikigai to lead the way.

  • 9th grade students explored their Ikigai, interviewed a business partner in the field of their choice, and presented their posters in a gallery walk
  • 10th grade students chose a field to research, interviewed a business partner and presented their Pecha Kuchas, a 20 slide, 20 seconds per slide presentation summarizing their learning
  • 11th grade students spent 1 week in a professional learning experience and presented their conclusions in a TED Talk
  • 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students heard from business partners and also participated in hands-on workshops learning new skills such as sculpture, sewing, how to buy a used car, chess, character design, creative writing, and video game design
  • 12th grade students spent 2 weeks in professional learning experiences and will present the culmination of four years of I-Term research and learning experiences
