Genius Hour

Two weeks ago, Middle S started a new project: Genius Hour. Based on the concept of "20% time" (a google innovation), students are provided with an hour a week to learn about the things they are most passionate about. The idea is that this time improves students engagement and productivity.
Some students are designing and creating experiments or games, some are researching topics they are interested in. No matter what they are learning about and becoming genius' in, they are all expected to reflect on, record and share their learning - with the class and also with YOU.

On that topic, what do you like learning about the most??
