Edmonton Public Schools teachers, Aaron Dublenko and James Stuart, facilitate the Innovate Program for elementary and high school students. If there’s an example of taking the classroom out into the real world, Innovate has to be it. In fact, there’s no classroom at all with this unique program. Instead, Edmonton high school students host and attend career fairs on urban agriculture, create gym-sized maps to understand the migration routes of bears, and install solar panels on school rooftops.
