The current educational system was developed a century ago during the rise of the industrial age and was once the envy of the world. However, the world economy has since transformed profoundly, but the education system has not. Schools are attempting to teach and test skills, when mastered, that still leave graduates woefully unprepared for the 21st Century.

After presenting this problem, the documentary focuses on the story of a school in San Diego that is completely rethinking what the experience of going to school looks like. As we follow students, parents and teachers through a truly unorthodox school experience, the audience is forced to consider what sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century?

Inspiring Australia ACT, in conjunction with the ACT Chapter of Association for Learning Environments, University of Canberra, and the ACT Association of Independent Schools, is excited to bring this thought-provoking documentary, as part of National Science Week 2016. We promote engagement with science, technology, engineering and mathematics and how we can use innovation in education to help inspire our kids to participate in the 21st Century workforce using STEM and entrepreneurial skills. The ideas presented in this documentary are the starting point for an important conversation about the future of education.
