Project Spotlight: Motivation High School

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

The design team at Motivation High School tests the
feasibility and desirability of turning an unused space
at their school into a student resource center.

When you think about the problems facing urban schools and students, any number of things might come to mind.  What about something as simple as printing an assignment?  Or having a quiet place to focus on your work?  The DT Philly team at Motivation High School, a small magnet school that serves a high-poverty population, considered a variety of challenges affecting students and their community before focusing their attention on how they might create access within the school to the resources students need to succeed.  Their efforts earned them a $2,500 grant from Compete 360 to help implement their vision. To see the team's PowerPoint presentation, click here.
