A group of Hapnot Collegiate students is taking part in a 20 Time Project and want to share their ideas with you. Teacher Daniel Dillon explains the Project provides students with 20 percent of their time to work on a project of their choice. He says in his class he gives the students time that ends up being an hour to pick a topic. He says they start at the beginning of the year and there’s a structure every Friday that they work through for them to explore a specific area that they’re interested in and link it to the curriculum and this way they kids are able to see how school connects to their lives through these projects so in the end they need to do the research, they need to create something and then need to present it to the community.
Some of the 20 Time Projects include learning languages, starting businesses and looking at careers. The presentation will run next Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 in the Hapnot Collegiate Theatre and it is free to attend.
