The much anticipated Science Classroom will be ready for the 2011 / 2012 school year. Thanks to a generous year-end donation, we were able to create a classroom dedicated solely to science instruction, which has been at the top of the faculty wish list for several years.
Our teachers now have an ideal space in which to conduct their chemistry, biology and physics experiments with the students. The room is especially important for our upper grade students who will be conducting more ongoing and complicated projects, but younger grade teachers and students will also benefit from use of the new facility.
The classroom features include:
- New student worktables
- Teacher’s demonstration desk with gas and electrical outlets
- Chemical resistant clean up sinks
- Whole classroom ventilation
- Black out window shades
Waldorf education focuses engaging the hands as well as the mind. This interactive classroom will help us further our vision of comprehensive education of the whole child.
