CLASS DESCRIPTION:

You’ve got a project to do. But how long will it take? How do you break it down into parts or can you? How will you balance the time you need to put into doing it with everything else you need to do? What tools are out there that might help you? And where do you start?!

This is where to start.

We’ll look at projects for school, but we’ll look at your own goals, too. Want to change the world? Want to clean your room? It turns out that those are less different, conceptually, than you might think!

One of the critical skills needed for college and life.
