  • Features built-in opportunities to to gamify the process.
  • Helps increase students’ critical thinking, creativity, and engagement.

Students can "level up," earning badges and points, as they create, design, and carry out projects and develop ideas that impact their classroom, school, community, and world.

When implemented effectively, Genius Hour can be a more meaningful teaching and learning experience than any other.
