“Evening for Education” Part II Raises Funds for Eliot Learning Initiative

The Eliot School hosted night two of their 10th annual “Evening for Education” at Trattoria di Monica on Sunday, November 17 to raise money for the Eliot’s play-based learning initiative, EPIC: Eliot Play. Innovate. Create.

The EPIC methodology ensures the cognitive development of students through equitable and accessible hands-on learning opportunities. Currently, EPIC offerings include woodworking, podcasting, stop-motion animation and more. Fundraising from “Evening for Education” will support fab lab /maker spaces at each of the three schools and a full-time fellow from NuVu Studios to facilitate studio-based programs and project-based curriculum in these spaces.
