As another successful year wraps up I would feel remiss if I didn’t take some time to reflect on the successes. The Genius Hour project is an opportunity to take ownership of learning and engage in statistics. Some students take advantage of this and really make a difference on our campus. This year we have a beautiful mural in the science hall, we have started the process of urinal dividers in the male restrooms (because apparently this was a great need), we have a new app that will help to encourage school spirit, and two of my favorites we had tackle boxes distributed throughout campus to encourage intellectual curiosity and we have a student working with administration to help our LGBTQ population feel more welcome on campus.
These projects impress me each year. They motivate me to keep trying new ideas, out of the box ideas, to keep learning fun and relevant for me and my students. Great job this year Stats! And thank you!!!
