A Learning Studio is a place where learners define the problems they want to solve and design solutions to address them. Leveraging powerful technology from HP and Microsoft, students engage in activities and projects that expose them to skills and strategies such as design thinking, engineering, and digital communication.

Visitors to a Learning Studio will observe that:

  • Students are deeply engaged in learning…
  • Students demonstrate ownership of their learning…
  • Students understand the value of taking on another perspective…
  • Students understand that systems and products could be designed differently…
  • And they¬†take action to improve their local and global communities.

How We Engage
