Upcoming Programs


 

At We Connect The Dots our teaching approach is combined with experiential learning and brain-based research to ensure students come away with positive outcomes and skills they can apply today and in their future. There is nothing more enjoyable than to see a student so engrossed in their learning experience that they cannot be easily pulled away from their work. The learning experience becomes a creative energy like a magnet. Helping a student find his or her passion is a wonderful, yet intense feeling, and seeing it happen in front of you can be a very rewarding experience for the students and facilitators.


In our programs we are cognizant of setting timelines and expectations of when the creativity must come to an end or where they need to wrap up their creative thought. Whether it is about taking a break to eat lunch or moving to the next topic. Many times we find ourselves redefining the agenda only because the students are in such a creative moment that breaking it would be destructive to the learning experience. So we always create space in our agenda for the possibilities of shifting. 

Our organization is run by and for students in many ways. We include one student ambassador on our board for a two year term to provide them the experience of being a part of a board as well as ensuring the students interests are taken into consideration.

Every program we create is designed in partnership with students, teachers, and industry experts. This methodology provides a diverse prospective of content creation and delivery concepts as well as alignment with today’s industry needs and career opportunity awareness. This is what we like to call our “STEAM Recipe for success”.
