Reed Elementary School’s Genius Hour Program Sparks Media Interest

The students work on computers during Genius Hour.

On Tuesday, March 31, 2015, KMOV-TV reporter Alissa Reitmeier visited Reed Elementary School to investigate the buzz about the Genius Hour and why some students are willing to skip recess to participate in it.

Reed Elementary School Technology Integration Coach Jill Badalamenti gave Alissa a “show-and-tell” view of the program’s benefits for KMOV-TV’s News 4 School segment.

The Genius Hour project was funded by a grant from the Ladue Education Foundation.
