About this Grantee

Recognizing the importance of cross-curricular and experiential learning, Mr. Meyer and Mr. Wilson supervise the design and creation of a twenty-four hole miniature golf course by their eighth grade students. Each hole of the course represents one decade of United States history and contains three obstacles that represent challenges faced by Americans of that decade. For each hole, students also create a scale drawing, budget, written report, one mathematically-proven hole-in-one shot, and a downloadable podcast with appropriate music for the decade and an explanation of the key features of the hole.
