Through a grant funded from the Olin B. and Desta Schwab Foundation, Region 8 ESC is facilitating College and Career Readiness educational programs supporting current and past PBL and STEM efforts in the region.

A focus of this grant is to build a professional learning community of Makers by providing training, a collection of resources and access to a collaborative and informational website. These elements will connect Makers in education across NE Indiana, building a network and partnership between business, nonprofits, government, and education to support, sustain, and grow the initiative while planning for future possibilities. The ultimate goal is “Making Possibilities for Students of NE Indiana.”

Inquiry-based learning allow students to develop skills important to college and career readiness which include, but are not limited to, deep understanding, entrepreneurship, technology, computational thinking, innovation, metacognition, and design thinking.
