Real Life Learning at MHS

Mission Hill School eighth graders are participating in their second Apprentice Learning ‘apprenticeship’ this school year, where each student travels to a local business one afternoon a week for six weeks and works alongside of an adult mentor.

Apprentices gain career knowledge while applying good habits of work to the world beyond the classroom. At the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, Apprentice Engineers participate in the design process and test their mini robots,  “Bristol Bots” under the tutelage of Crystal Knodel, Staff Electrical Engineer.

Siobhan and Kaya test their mini robots at the Wyss Institute during Apprentice Learning.
