With EL3, Learning Happens Everywhere

Whether it’s in the classroom, after-school or online, Evanston youth now have one place to go to explore what’s possible based on their interests. Select what you like to do and what career you want to have and start your learning journey. Be it an online coding game, a program at Evanston Public Library, a free event at ETHS, or a special project within your science class, EL3 offers a variety of engaging opportunities.

EL3 is a collaboration between Evanston-Skokie School District 65, Northwestern's Digital Youth Network and Evanston's out-of-school organizations. As an online learning platform, EL3 is a space where you can build your "digital backpack" to show what you have learned and what you can do—to friends, teachers, or parents.

See what D65 6th graders are doing this Spring!

This spring, all 6th graders across District 65 will be tackling Evanston’s biggest environmental issues in their science classes through the Sixth Grade Citywide STEAM Project. Working in teams, students will:

  1. Choose a topic from the City of Evanston’s Climate Action & Resilience Plan (CARP).
  2. Come up with a solution that addresses their topic with the aid of afterschool partners.
  3. Present their ideas in a citywide showcase on May 16th at 6PM, which will be attended by Mayor Steve Hagerty.
