FUTURE LAB: A 21ST CENTURY LEARNING EXPERIENCE
The cornerstone of Future Lab, our suite of virtual reality platforms represents the potential future of education. Our individual VR headsets enable activities such as 3D field trips, and with our set of HTC Vive systems, we usher in an era of innovative, immersive learning.
With our 3D printers, students can turn their imaginations into reality! Students in the Lower School, Middle School and High School have access to these devices, facilitating creative and functional projects that they design and construct on their own and collaboratively.
In our production studio, students become producers of original content, creating professional-quality videos, audio files, and other digital media. In addition to helping students both gain technical expertise, we focus on developing their online personas and being positive, productive digital citizens.
We give our students tools to make things. With resources from circuit boards to soldering irons to reclaimed materials, our mobile maker lab provides opportunities for hands-on, experiential projects.
We have assembled a set of augmented reality programs that integrate digital information into the physical world. Students can point their iPads up to learn about constellations in the night sky, draw on paper to create masterpieces on their screen, explore virtual models of the human body, and much more.
Our students have the chance to put their coding and robotics expertise to use. High School students work both on their own and with mentoring programs tat pair them with younger students. Not only do they gain experience as instructors, but also continue to explore their own interests.
