In the past 2 weeks our space has really transformed from what it was, a dated Computer Lab, to what it will be, a modern Innovation Lab! Sections of wall were removed to create a single larger space. The end result will be part computer lab, part workshop, part learning laboratory. We will have numerous resources and tools to allow students and teachers to create, collaborate, and solve problems across the curriculum.
With our new laptops up and running our middle school students have started to dig into game design. Last week students learned to create sprites and objects and how to control their movement. They will be making full games in no time! We also have groups of students designing Minecraft Worlds and investigating Election 2016 through the design thinking process.
There is much more to come!
