On Thursday, topic teams chatted with an MVXpert – parent, grandparent, alum, or other connection brought in to engage students on their experience and expertise. Our students started with questions. Over the previous two sessions, topic teams worked together to cultivate open-ended, rich questions for our MVXPerts. Their preparation led to in-depth question-and-answer sessions targeted at our students’ wonders.
Among other in-person MVXperts, some joined via Zoom. The cooking group invited Mr. Bernie Kida, a self-taught Italian chef. Next week, more MVXperts will be coming like Lanier Fairchild, a zookeeper at the Monterey Zoo in Salinas, California for the Animal Experts group, Scott Fujita, a former NFL player, for the football group, Scott Verble, a Roller Coaster designer, for our Fast and Furious group, and Matt Capps, a former MLB player, for our baseball and softball group. All touchpoints will bring each group closer to reaching their goals.
