Whitnall High School STEM
After partnering with us on a successful referendum, the Whitnall School District upgraded its high school STEM and business spaces.
Need: More opportunities for students to explore classes in business and/or the trades
Solution: Create a STEM wing in addition to improvements of the business learning spaces

Integrating Hands-on Learning
A new Whitnall High School STEM classroom provides computer stations and workspace for students while the neighboring fabrication lab (Fab Lab) offers multiple machines for digital production and printmaking. The state-of-the-art woods shop gives students access to woodworking equipment, allowing them to explore potential careers in skilled trades. The new metal Fab Lab also supports opportunities for hands-on learning. A centralized commons area acts as a gathering space for small and large group instruction within the STEM wing.
Improvements to business learning spaces include the renovation of a business classroom and the renovation and relocation of the student-operated school store to a more central location near the cafeteria.
