Skull Island is an interdisciplinary state and national award-winning simulation project for highly motivated honors freshmen students. The program challenges students to realize their ability to think critically and encourages a quest for knowledge through the discovery process. The students will participate in a simulation that extends their learning and pushes the students beyond the realm of the classroom and textbooks. Skull Island integrates all honors classes, including Geography, Biology, Language Arts and Integrated Math I or II. Students will work on both group and individual tasks including building shelters and tools, learning island biology, doing original research, and developing social structures. This program is designed to allow students to explore divergent ideas and concepts.
