Miles Cameron, Director of Innovation
The Innovation Center gives students a space to explore their ideas, manipulate real world materials, and test new technology. Through interdisciplinary projects, students use the space to discover and explore the curriculum through a hands-on approach. For example, imagine a fifth-grade humanities class learning about the complex irrigation systems used by the ancient Egyptians. Now, instead of just reading about it we can ask the students to design their own irrigation system for a small window garden. They will work together to solve real-world challenges; they will make connections with the past and have a unique product to show for their effort.
Lower Campus Imagination Space
The School opened an Imagination Space for students in PreKindergarten-Grade 4 in the fall of 2015 – a place where creativity is sparked by weekly challenges from Director of Innovation Miles Cameron.
