One of the projects in the two-week Summer Program at Meros Academy was to guide students through planning out and painting a GIANT mural as a means to instill an appreciation and understanding of innovation and its evolution. Groups of students agreed amongst themselves, based on collective interests, an innovation or innovator that they wanted to showcase. One group chose the revolutionary skateboarder #RodneyMullen who invented multiple groundbreaking tricks such as the Ollie, kick-flip and tee-flip. Another group chose the American author #MayaAngelou. The next group chose #KevinCarroll, who created a prosthetic fin for Winter the dolphin and was portrayed in the movie #DolphinTale. Two other groups had a technology focus and chose #SteveJobs and the #Google guys, #LarryPaige and #SergeyBrin. Their collective inventions have profoundly shaped how the world accesses information and communicates. Finally, one group chose #EadweardMuybridge who is responsible for the first ever #MotionPicture. Huge thanks to the #LearningCoaches who worked with these students: #NicoleHolderbaum and #LouisBetancour!

Teaching students the importance of a healthy diet is one of our core elements. It may not cause you to surf like Kelly Slater, but you'll think like a pro.

If we want real change in education, we have to redefine the meaning of school choice to include the choices students make: how to harness their innate passions and interests and new knowledge to creatively solve real-world problems.

Just because learning is fun does not mean it is easy. But challenging learning can be fun. In fact, that's when the reward is greatest.

Don't fear failure. Fear not having the opportunity to fail and start again.

Research shows us what motivates people to work. Meros Academy is bringing these principles to education. Hint: it's meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, and pride, not a letter grade.

"Schools should be playgrounds for the mind - enticing, safe havens where a child's curiosity and imagination motivate and guide them towards not only careers but a lifetime of curiosity and learning as well." -Marty Keltz
