Welcome to FutureLab at Clark School!
Here we give students the tools they need to explore, experiment, and engage in some of the latest technological modalities.
The cornerstone of FutureLab, our suite of virtual reality platforms represents the potential future of education. Our individual VR headsets enable activities such as 3D field trips, and with our set of HTC Vive systems, we usher in an era of innovative, immersive learning.
With our 3D printers, students can turn their imaginations into reality. Students in the Lower School and High School have access to these devices, facilitating creative and functional projects that they design and construct on their own and collaboratively.
In our production studio, students become producers of original content, creating professional-quality videos, audio files, and other digital media. In addition to helping students both gain technical expertise, we focus on developing their online personas and being positive, productive digital citizens.
Whether or not a student grows up to become a computer programmer, knowledge of coding teaches them critical thinking and problem solving skills that they can apply in the real world. Our coding curriculum ranges from basic Scratch to more sophisticated languages for advanced courses.
We give our students tools to make things. With resources from circuit boards to soldering irons to reclaimed materials, our mobile maker lab provides opportunities for hands-on, experiential projects.
We have assembled a set of augmented reality programs that integrate digital information into the physical world. Students can point their iPads up to learn about constellations in the night sky, draw on paper to create masterpieces on their screen, explore virtual models of the human body, and much more.
Our high-schoolers have the chance to put their coding and robotics expertise to use, both on their own and with mentoring programs that pair them with younger students. Not only do they gain experience as instructors, but also continue to explore their own interests.
