$1000 School Hack Challenge – Opportunity to Innovate & Create Change in your School or Community

DVD,

Reframe Labs (https://www.reframelabs.org/) is an organization that helps to launch new, innovative schools. Da Vinci staff has worked with Reframe in a number of ways and they have offered up this unique opportunity for our students. They have passed along this message:

In 13 days (March 11th), Reframe is hosting The $1,000 School Hack Challenge, a free daylong event in which Los Angeles students ages 13-18 team up to design and test their innovative ideas to improve their school, classroom, or community. Winning ideas get $1,000 for implementation, and they will be selecting 5-10 winners.  

The event will most likely be held at Mendez High School at 1414 Kemmett Ct, Los Angeles, CA 90033. 

It’s free and open to middle- and high school students. Here’s the registration page to pass along for any potentially interested students: https://www.facebook.com/events/1282261318520501/

A few other things to know…

  • Students attend as individuals. After pitching, the top 10 ideas will be identified via crowd-sourced voting and students participants will then self-form teams. A team of Da Vinci students could still work together under this process.
  • Students don’t necessarily need their own ideas to participate, since they can simply join another team, but they do hope each student comes with his/her own idea for the initial pitch.

Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to answer (or find the answer!) for you.

MESSAGE FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT OF AVIATION LITTLE LEAGUE

The league fields are located North of Del Aire Park and behind some of the Da Vinci Schools (Design and Communications).

See our website – Aviation Little League

The Opening Day of the baseball season is March 4th. Every year we have a large crowd for opening ceremony and we want the fields to look very presentable.

Due to the past storms we have not been able to complete some of the field clean up. One major project will be painting a large size of wall that is located west of the fields. It is the wall that divides our fields to the aerospace parking lots. We have the paint and some materials (brushes/rolls).

We understand your students need volunteer hours and we will like to invite your students to come down to the field to help us paint the wall and even possible draw a mural(s) on the wall. Please bring brushes and/or rolls if you have extras. It will be a big help for us.
