This grant will provide Whitewater Middle and CMS with a national showcase lab to support continued growth of Innovation Labs at the middle grades level throughout the country. This work aligns with the school's implementation of the district's first middle grades Environmental-STEM partial magnet in August of 2018. The lab will serve as a resource for students to be able to research, collaborate, innovate, create and influence others around issues of environmental and sustainable need within the Charlotte community.
In addition to traditional coding, 3D printing, circuitry and robotics, the students will learn about next level technology such as vitrual & augmented reality, wearable technology and the internet of things. Through this work, we will build confidence, crititcal thinking, and set students up for success.
