Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
Since its founding in 2000, ISLAND has become a ground-breaking organization transforming Poland's education system. Engaging 1,600 students and over 2,000 teachers in its nationwide programs, ISLAND shifts the conversation around learning in multiple spheres. Most representative of ISLAND's impact, however, is its constant expansion to include more programs that better serve its mission. Developing experimental curricula, problem solving competitions, public education counsels, education centers, teacher networks, professional development programs, and scientific camps all in just over a decade, ISLAND continues to push the envelope on teacher training in public education. Indeed, ISLAND's latest plans include massive national scaling, as well as expansion into Western Europe.
