Introduction

What is Trix and Trax?

Lissette Rojas
“Activities such as Trix and Trax are essential not only to encourage the development of talent in arts, music and sports but also to teach values that are important to our educational institution such as creativity, leadership, teamwork and self-confidence.”

Ivonne Blanco, Director of Colegio IEA-El Peñón

Adolescent years are some of the most crucial and influential of a student’s life. They are often plagued with low self-esteem and poor self-image which can be detrimental for young people and stop them from developing their passions and interests.

We need to develop opportunities that get them excited, Trix and Trax provides encouragement and motivation to help them fulfill their potential in a way that reinforces and builds socio-emotional skills.

Trix and Trax is an educational program integrating live events with online video performances.  With over 1000 video performances and over 2 million online views this social media based platform is creating quite a buzz around student's passions.


The program is centered around 5 zones:

  • The Trix Zone - to show and learn to do tricks with a ball like football-freestyle, skateboarding, slackline, rollerblade,  BMX, or any non-traditional sports.

  • The Trax Zone - to show and learn to play music with a guitar, drum, bass,  mix music like a Dj, sing or play with your band.

  • The Dance Zone - to show and learn new steps, dance styles, and choreography.

  • The Visual Arts Zone to show and learn to paint, graffiti or photography.

  • The Media-Tech Zone: To film and edit videos and manage the online platform and social media channels for those who prefer to stay behind the cameras and be part of "The Staff."

Trix and Trax creates the right conditions so that any student can perform in front of others in a safe environment to showcase their talents, in any of the zones, and learn from each other.

The program works to transform the tacit knowledge of these "Super Heroes" into a step by step practical learning methodology to enable them to discover their talents & learn how to teach & learn from  their peers. Through a set of sessions, each "Super Hero" first learns to discover and present their talents. They then work as a group, divided by their zone of choice, to work in teams, teaching and motivating a group of peers to prepare a final group performance for each zone. Videos of these performances are shared on the Trix and Trax social media tool and students give positive feedback and recognize each others strengths.

All participants of the program then take on the final challenge of organizing a Trix and Trax event for the school where each zone is set up, not only to highlight their talent but also to welcome other students who want to experiment and learn more about it. They are now ready to show their talent and to teach and motivate and inspire others to show their talents.
