What makes guild hall
Every Kid A Creator
There are no rinse and repeat projects, all of our students from the earliest ages are presented with the tools and freedom to create their own solution to whatever project, problem, or task is asked of them.
Every Kid a Problem Solver
For our younger learners, all lessons and projects start with a problem and a story. Each student is brought through the process of understanding and empathizing with the story teller, learning and asking questions so they can figure out their own best solution.
Older learners are presented with situations where they don't have all the information and are allowed the freedom and flexibility to discover their own problems! Real engineers and artists rarely get the answer before the test, we teach kids how to navigate the unknown, formulate useful questions, and arrive at their own solutions.
Fail Early, Fail Often, fail forward
Creation is messy and you can never create something new if you're not willing to fail a few times along the way. What is important is that you learn and continue on. We employ failure based learning methodologies to help students learn resilience, debugging, and iteration by simply allowing them the chance and freedom to make mistakes and learn from their experience.
