THE FUTUREGIRLS, FRANKLIN MIDDLE SCHOOL


About this talk

Franklin Middle School Futuregirls

What happens when you combine education and collaboration, then drop it in a middle school classroom? You get the Futuregirls program at Franklin Middle School. This talk—part panel, part performance—shows what happens when open source principles and leadership meet dedicated middle schoolers. And as you’ll see from the Futuregirls’ colorful codebook, the results speak for themselves.
