New Lower School STEAM Hub Encourages Creative Collaboration

0

Earlier this fall, Roland Park Country School unveiled several exciting new spaces on campus, including a recently constructed cheery and light-filled Lower School STEAM Hub. This redesigned space is adjacent to the Killebrew Library and connects the Junior Innovation Space with the new Lower School art room to fulfill Roland Park Country School’s vision of purposefully integrating each of the components of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) into the school curriculum for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

“We are focusing on every content area to pair with design challenges and projects that have a real purpose to help students extend their learning beyond the classroom in a creative and meaningful way,” said Joe LePain, the Director of Information and Innovation at Roland Park Country School.

Garrison Forest Girls Take on Woodworking

Garrison School Woodworking Two years ago, a student told Garrison Forest Upper School art teacher Sarah Sachs about an Adirondack chair her brother made in a woodworking class at an area boys’ school. “I started looking into it and all of the boys’ schools had woodshops,” said Ms. Sachs. Yet, in her research, none of the area girls’ schools taught woodworking. This drove Ms. Sachs to begin her journey toward creating a woodworking class at Garrison Forest, which wrapped up its inaugural semester in January. She began by visiting one school, which has a woodworking department in each division, to start gathering ideas and learning more about the tools the students would need to get started. She was excited to realize that the GFS sculpture studio already had most of the required tools and she was able to purchase the remaining tools needed in order to launch the course.
