GIRLS’ LEARNING ADVANTAGE
The Student Experience at HNMCS
Committed to the development of each girl’s love of learning.
Innovation Time is a regularly scheduled period in the school timetable when students meet in small teams with a teacher mentor to plan and execute cross-curricular projects. Each project focuses on a big idea and meets curriculum expectations across a broad range of subject areas. Innovation Time provides opportunities for students to work collaboratively, use technology in creative ways, and engage in critical thinking and problem solving with real-world applications.
Students work in groups and select from categories such as Coding and Programming, Wellness and Mindfulness, Environmental Inquiries, Performance and Theatre, Social Engagement and Activism, Conceptual Design, My First Start-Up and Media and Societal Trends to design, create and make an impact. Girls employ critical thinking skills while taking things apart to learn how they work before developing market prototypes in the school’s design lab, which houses 3D printers, laser cutters and 3D scanners and encourages students to take things apart to learn how they work.
