 Armour Changing Tomorrow (A.C.T.)


The purpose of this program is to empower students to get involved, have a voice, take action and make a difference in the local and global community. The ACT program stands for Armour Changing Tomorrow and uses a project based learning model, that incorporates many areas of the curriculum.

Students will begin by choosing a social issue that represents their interests and is considered a significant local or global challenge. They will develop guiding questions, conduct research and then work on developing possible solutions for their specific social issue. In order to help guide students with their choices and to provide a variety of topics, three major themes have been selected for the program.

  1. Health & Wellness
  2. The Environment
  3. Citizenship

Students will have an opportunity to use a 3D printer to make an object that is a part of their solution or helps them communicate their solution to others. As part of a culminating activity, we hope to organize a student fair that will allow students to communicate and share their projects with the school and community. The fair may be coordinated with the open house in the Spring.
