Academic Technology Facilities
Students have access to a variety of technology throughout the school day. Additionally, there are several “high-tech” areas on campus that are used to enhance the educational experience, including the IDEA Hub and the ThinkTank.
In the IDEA Hub, books, media and technology merge to encourage hands-on discovery, learning, and creating.
Students focus on integrated, cross-curricular units of study and aim for experiences that develop deep connections to stories, information, and the world around them.
Students utilize multiple forms of technology such as Chromebooks, laptops, iPads and the IDEA Wall for visual thinking, brainstorming and designing. The Green Screen provides the capacity to film in front of any background students choose, and the Production Studio allows students to record audio in a quiet space.
The Thinktank integrates science, technology, engineering, and math with media arts and academics, empowering students to become creative problem-solvers who can practice critical-thinking skills across a range of disciplines.
It is equipped with circuitry, 3-D printers, sensors, a green screen, iPads, iMacs, and Chromebooks. This gives students an outlet to explore project-based learning in areas such as computer graphics and simulation, robotics, multimedia, and coding.
I'm excited to have a space to learn, explore, create, and grow using a huge range of technologies and tools. We have access to a range of tools as familiar as clay, paint, and fabric, up to new equipment like 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC woodcutters. Students will realize their ideas and designs in ways they previously could have only imagined..
