"Intelligence is the ability to adapt and change" -Stephen Hawking
Why did I come to Animas? Why do I try my hardest? What is good about Animas? I will start this off with the reason I came here. I have found that our current schooling system, is outdated and its sole purpose is to teach us how just to follow directions but at Animas, it's different, Animas has a unique style of learning where I am free to express myself through my projects. It also allows me to learn in another way I have not done before. This style of learning is called project-based learning. Project-based learning is where their main focus is on showing their work through projects rather than tests. On your projects trying your hardest can help produce amazing work which can be beneficial to help get a job or to get into a college. It also is better to do it right the first time because you will not have as many revisions the next time around but you should still take feedback and improve. Another way to say this is to have a growth mindset. A growth mindset is to produce and improve your work without giving up on it. What I find interesting is that Animas is a place where you can have the ability to advance your learning through expiration. A place where the community is kind. A place where you call the teachers by their FIRST name to connect with them more. These are a few examples of Animas and this is why I came to Animas. This is why I try my best at Anima. This is what I like about Animas.
