An Open House Event at The Goddard Schools Nationwide
Inspiring Young Minds for the 21st Century
Between January 13 and February 15, 2014, Goddard School preschools across the country will celebrate 21ST century learning and innovation!
“In order to thrive in today’s world, children need to be equipped with 21st century skills. P21 applauds The Goddard School’s focus on developing these skills early so that students can be successful in and out of school.” – Helen Soule, Executive Director of P21

21st CENTURY SKILLS BUILD CHALLENGE
With 21st century skills in mind, Goddard Schools are participating in a Build Challenge with STEM-focused TINKERTOY pieces! Children in each Goddard School will identify a problem and use TINKERTOY pieces to help solve it! From flying cars to living under the sea, Goddard School children will have the opportunity to utilize the 4C's (Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity) and STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to develop a new invention!
Visit your local Goddard School to view these inventions, or stop by our Facebook page Monday, February 24, at 5:00 PM ET until Monday, March 3, at 5:00 PM ET to view each Goddard Schools invention and vote for your favorite!
