The 2011-12 term of MINDDRIVE consists of two class tracts: Contemporary Communications where students learn presentation skills, storytelling through writing exercises, blogging, photography, & videography, website design, and social media. The second learning tract is Automotive Design Studio where students learn principals and concepts in math, science, technology, creativity and innovation. Both of these learning tracts are supported by professional, volunteer mentors and use experiential, hands-on learning techniques. We limit our classroom time to about 25% of the total time spent together during a weekend session. The other 75% is spent learning by doing. This not only cements the concepts into their thinking, it connects the dots of why they need to learn these things and how it fits into the larger picture of their life’s goals and ambitions beyond high school.
