The remodeling and extension of a two-storey turret of the Queen-Anne-style school building provides a new activity lab for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects for junior-school aged pupils.
The space is designed as a ‘lab’ in which different STEM-based activities can be undertaken: a space where pupils can experiment and create physical tests as a
means of learning. We worked the schools’ pupils and Artist in Residence, Jack Cornell, to test, draw and model the future uses of the space. The pupils populated a number of large-scale models to explore their ideas as to what a STEM lab of the future might be like.
