The Innovation Center is envisioned as a space for students of all ages to authentically engage in a classroom topic through an authentic, hands-on approach. Students, teachers and mentors can collaboratively learn, problem solve, design and create. The space will be designed with maximum flexibility in mind, to include rooms separated by flexible walls such as clear garage doors or sliding walls that can allow the space to support large group functions or smaller group work.
