The Quest is a unique, student centered opportunity for knights of Nuview Bridge Early College High School to follow their interests and apply their knowledge in a quest to know more about the world around them. This experience is a cure for common educational practices where learning normally happens in isolated disciplines. The Quest allows students to challenge themselves and practice critical thinking in a supportive environment. The Quest is a collaborative group project that will span the course of each school year. The project begins in 9th grade as an individual project where you discover your interest. In 10th grade your interest becomes the area you wish to explore and investigate. 11th Grade is a time to test out different ideas in your area of interest. By 12th grade you will get involved and implement action in your area of interest. Collaborative groups will consist of four students in the same grade level.
The Quest is a graduation requirement for each year you attend Nuview Bridge Early College High School. The presentation is not your end product, but rather just a means of communicating what you researched and how that lead to your groups actual project. The project is what you decide to do (idea) or create (innovation) as a result of your research and discussions.
Some of the goals of Quest include: collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking, use and integration of technology, application of knowledge from diverse subject matters, creativity, innovation, citizenship, and community service.
