Sit & Think: Flexible Seating for an Innovation Lab

My students need a bean bag chair and several types of stools to create a flexible workshop-style innovation lab as well as a vacuum cleaner to keep our workshop clean.

My Students

My students love to make and build things. They can take an old pretzel container and build a jet pack or use a bunch of Popsicle sticks to engineer a bridge that holds more than 20 pounds. They surprise me with their creativity and ingenuity every day. Many of them are learning English here in a America for the first time. All of them come from a high-poverty neighborhood, but that doesn't stop them from being excited to participate in our K-8 STEM classroom every time they walk through the door.

My Project

Last year, my classroom had large tables with bulky classroom chairs. As the year went on, we realized that this restricted our movement and limited the set up of our class, especially when it came to building larger projects. We found that some students needed to study or collaborate while others students were building. In addition, both Kindergarten and 8th grade both used the same classroom to attend STEM class, so it had to be rearranged several times a day to accommodate their different needs. This was a challenge with our cumbersome tables and chairs.

Flexible, mobile seating will allow students to truly have a STEM workshop space where they can study, innovate and build.

My students will be able to work on the floor, stand at a table, journal in the beanbag chair or move a stool to work in a group. This type of furniture will allow the classroom to easily change based on the project we are currently working on as well as the age of the student. It will also give us more room to build and create awesome STEM-based projects!
