The I.D.E.A.S. Lab (which is the name of our makerspace that stands for innovation, design, engineering, art and science) is an exciting new way to promote the established concept of cross-curricular learning. The lab is the ideal environment where students are encouraged to engage in all STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) fields, while enabling them to find new and exciting ways to improve their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
The lab is part of Oak Knoll's robust Lower School technology curriculum, featuring a Genius Hour, enhanced coding, Wonder Workshop K-12 with additional challenge packs for Dot and Dash robots, app-building curriculum, Swift Playground from Apple for iPads, and CoSpaces for creating virtual environments.
The space features collaborative tables, sit-to-stand desks, modular seating, wobble stools, a large butcher block brainstorming table, and student creation stations in order to enhance student-centered learning.
