As we transition to the season of pumpkin spice everything, the transition of the space on the southeast corner of Clarks Creek Elementary is no less exciting. No more chlorine smell. No more locker rooms. And no more swimming pool, record boards and bleachers.
Instead, steel and drywall, new bathrooms, massive new windows and an entirely new configuration. The Imagination Lab is coming to life!
With input from a steering committee of teachers from all four elementary schools and PCMS, Dr. Giesting and Mrs. Ballinger (Director and Assistant Director, respectively, of The Imagination Lab) are overseeing the endless details that come with the development of a new concept, in a new space, and with a new philosophy.
Inside the space, the unique rooms and spaces are now recognizable by the untrained eye. From the massive studio area, to the thinking labs, to the collaborative space, you can imagine a finished product, with the sounds and energy of young students excitedly tackling projects of all varieties.
And the work that's happening isn't just inside the space! Stay tuned for more exciting news, photos and even a video.
