As members of the North Carolina High-Tech Learning Accelerator (NCHTLA) Advisory Council, two of our high school students, Briannah Royster and Joshua Hernandez, and our innovation lead, Dr. Destiney Ross-Putney, had the opportunity to participate in a two-day design lab in Wilmington, NC. Thirty-two students and nineteen innovation leads across the state worked in collaborative groups to tackle the design question, "What kinds of learning experiences might you design to help students learn about, prepare for, and pursue high-tech jobs?"

Vance County Schools held a ribbon cutting today for Gargoyle Garden, a musical garden located at the Center for Innovation (CFI), located at 219 Charles Street. The garden is filled with musical instruments that provide experiences for students to learn about beats, music, echo, reverberation and much more! The garden is named after the gargoyles positioned across the facade as part of the 1930's construction of the building.
