School children are donning backpacks once again in the Smith Mountain Lake community. Another school year is beginning at most area schools and man families here are expecting nothing short of excellence from public and private school systems. One of the ways the Franklin County school system is achieving high standards of learning is through an innovative, hands-on approach at the Gereau Center.
Franklin County’s Gereau Center is a creative learning center whose program combines challenging academic standards and integrating critical thinking skills in a problem-based learning approach. The Center for Energy Efficient Design (CEED), in which Energy Engineering is taught, is a building on the same campus.
Students who rotate through the Gereau Center are immersed in real problems, units of study and projects, guided toward practical solutions by instructors who function as facilitators. This opportunity to apply content shows students the real world applications of their studies.
