  • Create Paddle Boats through 3-D Printing

Skill Building:
 Math, Logic and Probleming Solving, Design and Creativity

Middle School DREAM Lab®

By Middle School, students have acquired a solid set of logic, design and engineering skills. And now they have the opportunity to take it to the next level, taking projects close to real-world applications!

  • Build Prototypes of a Refugee Shelters
  • Program a Mobile App and Speak wtih Professional Game Designers
  • Create Personal Websites
  • 3-D Print the Parts of a Cell
  • Build Wind Turbines to Learn about Solar Energy

Skill Building:  Design Thinking & Application; Data Analysis; Scientific Problem Solving

Upper School DREAM Lab®

In Upper School, the Computer Science classes are housed in the DREAM Lab. The specialized equipment, including 3D printers, laser cutter, CNC machine and electronics allows us to weave engineering and design into our more traditional computer science classes.

An introduction to programming can cover computer science concepts through programming robots designed and built by the students themselves. Students learn concepts such as recursion by programming graphic representations of fractals and laser engraving them onto wood. Our physical computing course combines programming and physical objects in the spirit of the Internet of Things.
