Learning Module Selection Booklet for 2023
In your first IEM (start of February) you will be able to discuss your class choices for 2023 with your new learning hub coach. You will have a chance to read the booklet over the summer and think about which “module set” would be your top choice, which SPINs you will take and the project toy would like to be involved in (your hub coach will ask for your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices).
Any questions - use the digital question box!
