Flying Classroom provides a STEM+ focused curriculum that promotes integrative student (explorers) learning through a project-based learning instructional model. All of our expeditions are based on the explorations of Captain Barrington Irving. Captain Irving ventures to all corners of the world and explores a problem plaguing the global community.
Then, students (explorers) engage in a three-part expedition unit. Each expedition unit includes three lessons: Engage, Explore and Innovate. Explorers are provided the opportunity to engage in literacy tasks, solve mathematical scenarios, learn about cultures, explore geography and participate in a virtual field trip via the expedition. Explorers work collaboratively to design a solution to the global problem that Captain Irving has explored. They solve the posed problem by participating in a rigorous, real-world and relevant engineering design challenge that promotes collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking while employing an engineering design model (used as a guide for solving problems). Available expedition lessons can be accessed by our Lead Explorers across the globe.
