Solution: Peanut Free Zone

The Windward School

Los Angeles, CA

The 2016 Challenge Based Learning Project at the Windward School in Los Angeles focused on the challenge of making a difference for people in their community with non-infectious diseases. In this video students talk about how they worked with the LA Dodgers to create a peanut free zone so students with peanut allergies enjoy a major league baseball game. Each spring the 8th-grade students at the Windward School in Los Angeles, CA use the CBL framework to identify a challenge, take action and make a difference in their community. The results from the 2016 class are documented in a series of videos created by Digital Promise in partnership with Alas Media. They demonstrate what is possible when academics and service learning merge through Challenge Based Learning..
