What is the Passion Project Showcase? 
Big Bend started a quarterly event in Winter 2021 to feature the works of wonder that inspire members of our school community. 
Why have a Passion Project Showcase? 
At Big Bend, we are fortunate enough to be surrounded by talented and awesome people. Our school is full of faculty, administrators, staff, and students who are experts in a wide variety of areas. Their work is driven by excitement and curiosity, and we want to celebrate these love labors.
