Design Lab

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.
As an inclusive private school community, Brimmer welcomes students who will increase the diversity of our school. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, or any other characteristic protected from discrimination under state or federal law, in the administration of our educational policies, admissions practices, financial aid decisions, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
