Oftentimes, people may envision summers for students and educators as a time for reflection and relaxation before the next school year approaches. However, The Lean Lab challenged the KCMO community to apply for a 4-week, intensive incubator we are hosting this summer to accelerate the educational opportunities for students in Kansas City. No longer will educators dream up ideas to challenges they face in their classroom and schools, but they will begin building real, viable solutions to them this summer at The Sprint Accelerator.
We have amassed an incredible group of people to take what's been done in the tech world and apply it to education. Our fellows will use design-thinking and lean methodologies to build with, rather than on, students and people in their communities. We are more than excited to see what our fellows will dream up, build, and accomplish starting next week. Stay tuned for updates throughout the 4 weeks!
For now, look and see who will be part of the 2014 Summer Fellowship team. Read their full bios here.
