In the EIC students practice 21st Century Learning Skills in context through competency-based learning activities that are tied to the Common Core, Next Generation Science, and National Standards in Social Studies, Core Arts and Computer Science.  Through practice-driven learning involving critical thinking, solutions fluency and problem-solving, students are given agency in determining outcomes. Activities include STEAM labs, virtual engineering, robotics, 3-D printing, computer programming, game-based learning, music and art compositions, debates, literacy, acting, media productions, and simulated open-ended gamified live-action adventures.  










The curriculum for many of our narrative-driven adventures are built upon the subscription paid simulator missions developed by Dream Flight Adventures that each cover 40 21st Century Learning Skills.  Click here to see the standards topics and higher order thinking questions for each of their missions.
