Innovators. Artists. Individuals

Rather than following the traditional path of teaching his students about the theory of sound waves, Mr. Javellana, 8th-grade Science teacher, decided to challenge them by going on a "learning by doing" journey. For the past several days, his students have transformed their science lab into a make space and music studio. While walking through his science classes, I was amazed by the level of student engagement as I observed them designing, building and testing the sound of their instruments.

There is a beauty in watching learning come alive!
