Experiential Learning is the process of learning by doing. Engaging students in hands-on experiences and reflection helps them better connect theories and knowledge learned in the classroom to real-world situations. Experiential learning programs can stimulate academic inquiry by promoting interdisciplinary learning, civic engagement, career development, cultural awareness, leadership, and other professional and intellectual skills. NSHSS is giving six (6) high school educators $1,000 grants to help provide experiential opportunities to their students and classrooms.
