Winners at Ruder Elementary’s Great Brain Project annual showcase last week have been announced. The Great Brain Project is a student-driven learning experience where a child takes a topic of interest and “digs in” to find out all they can about the subject until they become a “Great Brain” in that area. Parents support their child’s learning by providing them with the structures, resources and guidance they need to learn about the topic and complete a project.
