Innovation at AIS
At Agnes Irwin, you'll find kindergarteners coding robots, fifth graders building 3D models of the Nile River, eighth graders designing video games to explain the principles of Reaganomics, and upper schoolers using design-thinking principles to construct product prototypes.
We encourage our girls to create, explore, and innovate. Collaborate. Think about problems from a new angle. We feel strongly enough about it that we made Igniting Curiosity and Creativity in our students the first of four pillars in our Strategic Plan. We also created two campus spaces dedicated to discovery — and launched an Innovation Team that partners with teachers to bring innovative teaching practices to life in our classrooms.
Legacy Through Leadership Program
“Innovation” encompasses much more than the use of technology. Project-based learning, design thinking and interdisciplinary instruction are all key aspects of an AIS education, along with other tools for teaching in student-centered and meaningful ways.
