New Tech at Meridian

A former woodshop was transformed into a collaborative 21st century learning space.

Working with a small budget funded by local foundations, the school’s existing space was renovated to meet the standards for a New Tech school. Closed off, smaller rooms were opened and an
antiquated space was given new purpose to create a uniquely large space that’s perfect for project-based learning.

DETAILS

  • Two project-based learning studios
  • Several small group work areas
  • Student commons for team activities
  • Facilitator’s room for planning and preparation
  • Large instruction room to accommodate 100 learners with work stations
  • Students can easily move for group or independent work since everything is on casters
  • Carpet and acoustical panels help with sound absorption
  • Mobile smart boards, projection screens, & walls with rail mounted marker boards make the space flexible and technology=rich
