Students United: Mobile Minds Flipping Society
March 11, 2015 10:00 AM

GES15 was Michigan Governor Snyder's Economic and Education Summit for this year. This event was held in Detroit March 2nd and 3rd

The Michigan Creativity Group attended, taking in the learning experience, and applied their interviewing skills as "Students United" to get on-site perspectives.

Teacher Jason LaFay spoke with Michael Finney, Governor Rick Snyder's advisor for Economic Development and former head of the MEDC, for the economic perspective and how it impacts education. Student Samantha White interviewed Notre Dame Prep High School Seniors who have a STEM team that were demonstrating their robots at the GES15.

Student Jordyn Lewis interviewed Jeff Brown, State Director of Communities In Schools, about the program, while student Kara Zeiter got further insight from Mr. Brown about how a creative culture in high schools can prepare students for the work force.

Students United: Mobile Minds Flipping Society, hosted by Jeff Croley and Jason LaFay, intends to help merge the worlds of education and business by featuring innovative programs, projects, and people in K12 education throughout Michigan and beyond. The show aims to be the voice of K12 innovation. In order to better understand what is happening in schools it is important to provide a narrative of how education is evolving. To ensure a new generation of learner is adequately prepared, driven, and passionately ready for the workforce old divides must be bridged.
