From Tuesday April 3 to Thursday April 5, 2012, Bronx Lab School will once again send its students off to the world of service learning.
Explore Week is an important design feature at Bronx Lab that extends learning beyond the classroom and traditional hours of the school day.
Three times a year, the school community participates in an Explore Week experience, which lasts anywhere from three to five days.
Explore Weeks provide the time, space and opportunity to apply what students have learned over the course of the trimester in a real world context. It also requires that students step out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves in new environments.
Explore Weeks follow this basic format:
