On Thursday, October 30th GCE Lab School students and staff hosted Fall Term Final Presentations. Nearly 80 friends of GCE from across the city came together to learn with students about their discoveries from the past term. Attendees experienced a range of student-planned and led activities including: engaging guests in key rhetorical elements through a variety of media, creating bike models with an empathetic approach to design, calculating the impact of our water usage, and investigating the economics of mass transit in our city.Please take a few moments to view a brief video reflection of the event.
We hope that you’ll stay connected with
GCE Lab School through the activities below.
Help Grow GCE Lab School
We invite you to nominate students who you believe are creative and independent thinkers, those who care about learning in and beyond school. We would greatly appreciate if you would take a few minutes to put us in touch with any prospective students who are currently attending middle or high school, and who you believe would be receptive to our approach.
