What is the Sage Creek Genius Project?

The Sage Creek Genius Project is a year-long, student-chosen, passion project. Students are invited to choose their projects, execute their plan, and then reflect on their experience in a TED Style Talk that they give to their peers and community members. Students are required to choose a project that fulfills three criteria: passion, impact, and challenge.
