Live Course: Prestwick STEM Academy

A rapidly growing District sought to relieve exceeding capacities of its elementary and middle school facilities by creating a new K-8 Academy. The vision was to introduce STEM curriculum and 21st Century learning to the historically rural, now suburban community, and redefine learning to create future global leaders. The result is a compact 2 story and highly efficient learning environment with flexible and adaptable spaces that offer the learner multiple learning venues throughout the day.
