Dr. Robert Hall, the Change Agent at the helm of the Elmbrook School District’s forward-thinking experiential learning program, LAUNCH, joins Nathan on this episode of the Change Agent CTO podcast to discuss how LAUNCH is enhancing education by providing high school students with real-world learning opportunities in partnership with companies and organizations throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
Headquartered in Brookfield, WI, LAUNCH represents the collaboration of education, business and community, by providing students with unique, immersive experiences to begin developing the skills needed to become global innovators and leaders. This year, the program has 323 students enrolled from 5 high schools in the region and is partnering on projects with over 350 organizations.
In this episode, Dr. Robert Hall talks about the importance of changing the status quo of education by empowering students to be thought leaders in and out of classroom settings. The opportunity to develop students in a new and innovative way of learning can lead to the growth of leaders in the region and beyond.
