Creativity & Innovation
Inquiry-based learning is built around the idea that students achieve the highest degree of engagement and mastery when learning is constructed around individual and guided inquiries. In this approach to education and school life, the teacher offers context and frameworks for inquiry that empowers students to pursue open questions. Unlike more traditional closed-question education, which often only allows for teacher-supplied knowledge and single right answers, open questions have outcomes that are unclear and require careful consideration and examination. Inquiry-based learning opens the door to new questions, fostering the cycle of learning and engagement.
The TinkerLab is the heart of the Bennett Day School building and the soul of our program. It is a place to take apart and build, to ponder and actively pursue understanding through experience. Here is a place where students construct, literally and figuratively, understanding.
