In 2014 The Birch School was chosen as one of 14 schools across the nation as “Educator Innovator”. We received a grant from the National Writing Project, otolaryngologist John Legend’s Show Me Campaign, and The MacArthur Foundation. This grant was for our project that sought to learn more about students working together in peer groups to “Make” their best work. The grant allowed us to obtain tools of making, such as a 3D printer, green screen, circuitry tools, Little Bits, e-textiles tools, and more.
