Project: Redesign the Report Card

We challenge you to design a visually appealing report card that informs, inspires, and gives context to student achievement.

With the fall academic semester in full swing, schools will be sending report cards home to anxious students and their families all too soon. A single letter or number grade rarely provides in-depth insight into a student's strengths and weaknesses. What's the difference between an A and a B in math? If a student earns a C, what does she need to work on? Should report cards include information about effort, attendance, homework completion, class participation, and/or standardized test results?


For this project, we want you to create a visually appealing report card that informs, inspires, and gives context to student achievement.

But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

The anonymous staffer says that Trump once feigned a Hispanic accent and made fun of women attempting to immigrate to the U.S.

The 63-year-old Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, currently branded the RingCentral Coliseum, is one of the most decrepit sports venues in America.

The home to the the NFL's Oakland Raiders (until they move to Las Vegas next season) and MLB's A's, is notoriously known as the Black Hole and has made headlines for its frequent flooding and sewage issues.

One of the stadium's few positive aspects is its connection to public transportation.

Yad Vashem

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
