Please join I-Think, Ashoka Canada, and over 100 students, their teachers, parents, principals and friends at I-Think’s annual Celebration of Thinking!

The Crosswalk Company was started by three grade 6 students. Their goal: improve pedestrian safety after the tragic death of a child in their neighbourhood. Having come across challenges to scaling their initiative, they have turned to I-Think students to offer insights and ideas that will solve their problems.

Last week, seventeen grade 1-8 classrooms from Hamilton, Peel, Toronto and York Region began their problem-solving journey with Integrative Thinking. With the support of Ashoka Canada, each classroom received a kit of resources to use Integrative Thinking as they act as consultants to the Crosswalk Company.

On May 17th, students in grades 9-12 will be showcasing their thinking and recommendations – an active demonstration of how Integrative Thinking has made their learning relevant across subject areas.

Please go to our event website for more information and to RSVP.

We look forward to celebrating with you,
Ashoka Canada & the I-Think Team
