Expo 2020 at Ignite
The Expo School Programme offers outstanding learning opportunities for students that encourage creativity, innovation, and collaboration in the classroom. Ignite teachers harness their students’ creativity and imaginations into building a brighter future for all.
Below are projects that we will participate in as we prepare for this exciting event.
Monthly Expo Challenges
Expo Champions is an initiative for students to generate excitement and spread awareness about Expo 2020 to their fellow students, teachers, and parents. Each month a new challenge is shared and students are encouraged to complete them.
Music & Tolerance
This lesson encourages the students to engage with music and consider how it can be used to bring people of various cultures together, and to communicate important messages about equality, tolerance and inclusivity.
“Walk Through Past Expos”
Students will have the opportunity to make their own versions of inventions showcased in past World Expos.
Ignite Expo Event
We will set up our event similar to Expo 2020 with the same theme and subthemes. Student creations and class projects from the school year will be showcased at the first ever Ignite Expo in June.
