Prepare students for the road ahead by engaging them in authentic, sustained investigation that gives them the opportunity to cultivate the skills that will last a lifetime.
Problem-solving and design thinking are central components of every iBlock. You’ll see a strong focus on engineering design concepts like researching, constructing, testing, evaluating, and redesigning, since an iBlock teaches students that learning is a journey — not a straight line.
Enrich your existing curriculum with an iBlock, or use it to kick off a STEM initiative. An iBlock is designed to supplement your instruction with content that gives students a place to invent, explore, and take ownership of their learning.
Each iBlock culminates in a capstone project that brings together everything students have learned throughout their iBlock, from their earliest research to their latest redesign.
As students work through their iBlock challenge, they practice and hone essential 21st century skills like critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
