BCM Helps Give Students an EDGE
What does it take to be excellent in this day and age? Educators at one Northern KY school believe they've developed a program to better prepare students for just that. Beechwood Independent Schools, along with BCM and other partners, have teamed up to implement an experiential-learning curriculum focused on core concepts to help students become globally competitive - The EDGE Program (Educational Design Geared toward Experience).

Eighth-grade Beechwood students interested in studying fine arts in high school will begin working on a design for a sculpture to be displayed in NaturePlay@BCM. BCM Executive Director Laurie Risch and BCM Education Director Kim Gehring-Cook will be judging the students' works. We are very excited to see what their creative minds produce!
