Science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and (more recently) arts: these are the classrooms of the future. By focusing on these core tenets, STEaM classrooms are designed to set their students up for success in their post-secondary education as well as their future careers. These technology and science-informed classrooms feature enhanced fixtures and supplies to accommodate their subject matter, often supported by maker's spaces with even further tools.
Every STEaM classroom looks drastically different. This layout assumes the presence of several fixtures, including built-in countertops and a front-and-center island, while omitting the widely varied instruments that can make their way into the classroom. We highly recommend that STEaM classrooms work with a space planner and furniture consultant to retrofit and supplement the current classroom layout. See more options and advice in our complete guide to reimagining the post-COVID classroom.
