Alcuin School is encouraging new high-tech student pursuits in its new Innovation Studio, a facility designed to promote an interactive learning environment that stimulates imagination, creativity, innovation, and leadership exploration.
The contemporary studio, which launched this fall, is equipped with a variety of technological supplies and tools including a 3-D printer, All-In-One Learning boards, a SMART Table, and a presentation theater, among other cutting-edge amenities.
The goal is for these tools to give students access to advance resources in a collaborative environment that allow them to innovate in new ways and develop projects that extend beyond the classroom.
“The Alcuin Innovation Studio will enhance imaginative thinking and teach students the frameworks for problem solving by extending the tools and skills learned in the Montessori and IB curricula,” said Jenn Hampton, Alcuin innovation facilitator. “[The studio] is a commitment to providing our students with experiential education that helps them become future thought leaders and insightful contributors to the community and the world.”
