The Catalyst Exhibition

A Global Student Exhibition of Learning

The Catalyst Exhibition invites students to share, connect, and demonstrate the application of their skills to the real world.

GOA wants all students to cultivate agency in their learning.

At GOA, student agency means students have opportunities to express choice and voice in what, when, and how they demonstrate learning. The Catalyst Exhibition is a vehicle for meeting that goal. With Catalyst, students have the opportunity to demonstrate how they have applied the skills and concepts learned in their course to the real world.

This year, as we embark on our seventh year of Catalyst Exhibitions, we are initiating a two-year plan to adopt the Catalyst Exhibition as the culminating learning event for all GOA courses. In Semester 1 of the 2021-22 school year, students in several GOA courses will participate in piloting a new format for the exhibition. In Semester 2, the Catalyst Exhibition will include students from all GOA courses as well as students from participating member schools. The Semester 2 Catalyst Exhibition will take place April 21-25, 2022 and member school registration information will be available in January 2022.

The Semester 2 Catalyst Exhibition will allow teachers at GOA member schools to use GOA’s research project guidelines with their own students and participate in an online learning event where students display their work and explore presentations from peers around the globe.

Join us April 21-25, 2022
