Very excited to share I Heart Hamilton’s partnership with LeapYear Education! Do you have kids ages 9-16 in your life? LeapYear presents innovative courses this September, all led by certified instructors and paired with community partners.

Escape Room: In partnership with award-winning Alcatraz Escape Rooms, students get the chance to design their own escape room!

Journalism: Students work together to create an online news outlet filled with articles, videos and podcasts resulting from real-life reporting. (Partnered with I Heart Hamilton)
