WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington Academy of Arts and Sciences is taking learning to a futuristic new level.
The academy recently opened a state of the art science lab to help students have a strong science core for their future schooling and careers. Students in fourth through eighth grades get to learn in the lab.
This new lab focuses on a learning environment of tomorrow where science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is used. Students won’t just sit through lectures. They get to do experiments, participate in activities about the curriculum, use creative thinking, and collaborate with classmates.
Designed to be a thinking environment, with new technology and furniture for the students, the lab should help students engage more with the classroom. Smart boards and a glass blackboard, and the shape of the table, make it easier for students to engage with one another and their teacher.
Wilmington Academy of Arts and Sciences teaches students to think independently and draw on their own creative talents to solve problems. With this new lab, these students will do just that and continue their love for science while building an academic foundation for their future careers.
