We are pleased to announce that the Lake Oswego Junior High Architecture Team captured the big prize in Philadelphia yesterday at the SchoolsNEXT international competition. Over 3,000 students representing nearly 100 school districts from schools around the globe participated in the 2016 program. The competition challenges students from across the globe to think creatively as they plan and design tomorrow’s 21st century learning environments to enhance innovative ways of teaching and learning, be healthy, conserve resources, be environmentally responsive and engage the surrounding community. SchoolsNEXT embraces a 21st Century learning approach where students are enabled, engaged and empowered through a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) curriculum, including leadership and teamwork proficiencies, to master the skills they need to succeed in today’s global economy.
The team is coached by LOJ Teacher, Wendy Hinderhofer. We are so proud of all of you!
