Great idea and I can speak from the perspective of a potential partner...we are always looking for schools, educators, students that want experiential experiences. A clear vision is key though. As Erin commented...what is your team thinking about in terms of next steps? And what are the outcomes or success criteria you are looking for?
I too really like this idea. There is also potential for integration of experiential learning. Have the students research, prototype and possibly partner with another class, corp partner, parent, or community org to implement. Learning by doing is awesomely powerful.
