Marcus Villacorta is an upperclassman at Science Leadership Academy at Beeber. He is currently doing research on what makes inquiry based learning so different from the traditional approach to learning, as well as what the future of schools will look like. All for a personal project which is doubling as his senior project. Marcus has been doing research on the topic, but he appreciates to hear feedback, or personal prospective above all else. Come talk to him to share your opinion about schools and the way they approach learning, as well as how they will evolve in the future.
