Thank you for your interest in Brightworks! We are thrilled to be surrounded on so many sides and distances by educators who have been inspired by the educational adventure we are undertaking. Since 2011, we have heard from scores of fascinating people with so much to share and who want to be a part of the journey. It is our hope in the coming years to provide experiences, workshops, and programs that can directly influence teachers in their classrooms. In the meantime, the school blog is the best way to get the inside scoop on life here. We also host several information sessions through the school year for educators who want to see the school and ask questions about the philosophy, pedagogy, and day-to-day life at the school.

Do you have a skill to share? A story to tell? A bit of knowledge that could inspire a whole new avenue of ideas and thoughts for a kid during this arc? We’d love to meet you. Our arcs in the fifth year are Rock, Seed, and Human. Right now we are looking for experts who know something about rocks, geology, plate tectonics, the age of the universe, seeds, biological diversity, environmental science, genetically-modified organisms, anthropology, the evolution of humans, cultural diversity, and everything in between. Send us an email and let us know what you know.
