Charter School’s Robots and Waffles Test Active Imaginations

Assignments included making French toast, building a robot, taking a yoga class and spray-painting stencil graffiti. For homework: chopping wood for the fire. The tests, voluntarily taken, were those of the imagination — how to fashion an outfit of candy wrappers, what color to paint the clay figurine, how best to build a shelter in the Vermont woods.

Welcome to project period at the Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School.
