Thanks to a grant from the Wisconsin DPI, these students were able to spend the last 10 weeks practicing leadership skills as they collaborated in a project based learning experience. The students were challenged to respond to the driving question, "Which technological innovation has had the greatest impact, and what you do you predict it will look like in the future?" This talented group of young leaders developed and engaging, entertaining, informative, hands-on presentation that explained why they believe the greatest technological innovation is...DUCT TAPE!
