Laika’s Adventure is an experiential learning project that uses collaboration and creative problem solving to put education directly in the hands of students. Last fall, two classrooms, a continent apart, worked together to get a lost robot home. Over 10 days the robot named Laika traveled 2000 plus miles, visited 56 cities and found support from students, parents and teachers in 12 countries all powered by the imagination of the students. Later this year Laika will travel the globe visiting students and schools as the storyworld expands. At the conclusion of the project Laika is scheduled to be shot into space aboard a NASA rocket. The hope is when the children look up into the night sky they’ll be reminded of how far their imaginations can carry them.
