This year, Riverview Junior High Math teacher Haley Johnson has utilized grant funding from Murray Education Foundation (MEF) to task her students to mix logic with creativity through a monthly “Lego Challenge.” The entire school votes on the best builds and the winners get to build their own LEGO minifigure and honors for their efforts.
She’s also incorporating solo build time, giving students individual sets to free-build and explore their creativity further. Students thrive when given challenges and opportunities to express and explore ideas – regardless of the subject. These are great life skills and prepare them for a world that is waiting with anticipation for what Murray students have to offer.
MEF partners with the community to fund educator grants that help students grow. If your business would like to sponsor with MEF, bringing to life a love for learning with Murray kids, contact Doug Perry at 801-264-7400.
