Student Projects

Student-led projects are the core of LDI. Students work on personal projects that interest them, while also learning state standards. They can create a physical “product” to display their learning along with a presentation at Showcase. Students complete three projects each year following the ARMoR model, which stands for…

A- Aspire

Students brainstorm an original project idea and create an outline for the Advisors.

R- Research

Aspiring project-makers must research their topics and complete a selection of “missions”.

M- Model

In this stage, students create a product that represents the topic of their project.

R- Redefine

Last, students completely “redefine” their project with a final product.
