I was amazed and inspired when I visited my old school's brand new science wing. They start teaching in the space in January, and I know it's thoughtful design that seems to include every possible bell and whistle will only inspire more creativity and innovation in their lessons.
One of my favorite things about all of the rooms was the fact that every single surface could be used as a whiteboard! This means teachers and students are not chained to the front of the room, but teaching and writing can happen virtually anywhere in the space.
My second favorite thing about the space after the unending sea of whiteboards, was the integration of dynamic, science-related art.
My favorite is this rube goldberg-like kinetic art piece created by a famous Chicago artist for the wall space between the two Physics classrooms.
The new wing is also filled with lots of technology. There are smartboards in every room.
