Curious Educator Tour

Please join the staff of the Brightworks Curious Educator Division for a unique educators' visit, which will include a tour of our school, a peek at the kids at work, and a discussion about our innovative K-12 program.

We suggest you take public transportation, carpool with colleagues and/or allow extra time for parking; our neighborhood can be tricky.

If the dates available for educators during the Brightworks school day do not work for you, you may inquire about a private tour here. We will do our best to accommodate visits, but due to our small staff and open school environment, we are not able to honor all requests.


We look forward to meeting you!

Summer Institute
Jun

to Jun 15

Summer Institute

We believe that when you give kids real problems and real tools they discover their own competence, so come ready to roll up your sleeves. In this three-and-a-half day institute we will be spending the mornings exploring, prototyping and building. These experiences are designed to be scalable to a wide age range and will give you invaluable insight into your students’ experience. Our afternoons will be reflective. After a presentation from Gever and our team, we will rotate through half hour sessions hosted by collaborators (our word for teachers) and Gever. These small groups will be detail-oriented and discussion-based with the goal of giving you practical solutions to implementation challenges in your classrooms
