Students at Yadkin Valley Regional Career Academy are “Anchored in Innovation” for their fourth annual Fall Exhibition happening this Thursday, December 1st from 5:00-7:30 PM on the school’s campus (2065 E. Holly Grove Road in Lexington).
Toward the conclusion of every Fall and Spring semester, Exhibition is a way for students and staff to feature amazing projects completed throughout the semester in every class. Student ambassadors will be available to answer questions and help guide visitors through different project exhibits throughout the school.
Like the Super Bowl for project-based learning education, Exhibition is an opportunity for parents, community members and business partners to visit our campus and experience student presentations and projects that exemplify learning and accomplishments by the student body. Exhibition is our school's opportunity to showcase the learning and purpose behind project- based learning (PBL).
Visitors can expect to see a wide range of projects fully designed and created by students, such as fully-operational hydroponics systems, video games created and coded by students, 3D printed ‘pocket monsters,’ a miniature electrically-wired house, weather measurement systems, shadow puppet stories, short films, Greek mosaics, service projects, and much, much more!
Yadkin Valley Regional Career Academy (YVRCA) is an industry-focused public high school of choice promoting a blended, project-based learning environment that prepares students for the 21st century workforce. YVRCA students begin taking college courses for free during their sophomore year and have access to internship opportunities beyond the capabilities of traditional high schools. Eighth and ninth grade students currently attending a public Davidson County, Lexington City, or Thomasville City school are welcome to apply to Valley Academy online until the March 3, 2017 deadline.
We hope to see our many friends, family and community partners take advantage of this opportunity to witness what makes YVRCA a unique educational resource for Davidson County using innovative learning tools preparing our young citizens for future careers.
