Our curiosity-focused learning space expands the creative learning model pioneered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT Media Lab). Unlike traditional schooling, our model focuses on creative learning, not teaching. Current models of education are outdated and often focus on "teaching to the test". We like to think of our space as the future of learning with technology.
The 4 P model
Passion (member's interest and motivation)
Play (tinkering & playful learning)
Peers (social learning and collaboration)
