The Design Lab is a space created specifically for the Lower School that engages students in hands-on learning in all content areas. Equipped with a variety of tools and resources that lend themselves to design-thinking and inquiry-based learning experiences, our Design Lab allows students to be collaborative, innovative, flexible, persistent, and self-motivated—the skills needed to be a successful leader. Lessons in the Design Lab focus on developing creative thinking and problem-solving skills and are centered on an Essential Question. Students are encouraged to seek out the answers through hands-on experimentation, research, and collaboration. Learning becomes more dynamic and meaningful because the students take ownership of their learning.
