I have been so impressed by the Side x Side project at Reiche School. The hands-on nature of the Moving Oceans unit, working with professionals in their fields, made the learning relevant, exciting, and inspiring to my daughter. This experience has inspired her to want to be a marine biologist when she grows up!
In the beginning, it was really hard to collaborate and work in groups to create our film but in the end I loved the project because Side x Side helped me learn about myself and learn about my classmates.
It is imperative that we equip our students with the skills necessary to compete in the 21st century, and Side x Side recognizes that critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration are at the top of the list.
