How do we prepare students for a future we can only imagine? Filling their toolbox with knowledge, critical thinking skills and creative freedom is a good start. Collaboration and creative problem-solving are the building blocks that lead to brilliant ideas. Spaces like the STEAM Learning Lab at River Trails Middle School are more important than ever to nurture science, technology, engineering, art and math curriculum initiatives. The lab is complete with imbedded technology with Displax Film for interactive digital engagements and even a MakerBot 3D printer for prototyping. Writable surfaces throughout inspire collaboration, while glass lets natural light fill the space and the hallway beyond.
When other schools visit for sporting events, a common question arises. “How did you create this space and how can we bring it to our school?”
