Design Thinking is practiced throughout Sea Crest School. The hub centers in our Innovation Lab. The Sea Crest School Innovation Lab (iLab) is a K-8 space dedicated to creative problem solving, tinkering, design and prototyping. The industrial designed space is complete with flexible work tables, hand tools, 3D printers, foam cutters, vinyl cutters and a HandiBot programmable router. Additionally, a cart of MacBook Pros provide opportunities for vector design creation and CAD images, ready for output on the 3D printers and other devices. The iLab is managed by our Art + Design teacher who works closely with teachers to design engaging, hands-on projects for students to learn the design thinking methodology and utilize the tools and resources in the iLab. Each lower school teacher works collaboratively to create integrated projects executed within the iLab. Additionally, the Art + Design teacher offers middle school explorations classes in the iLab on such topics as Digital Arts, Experimental Filmmaking and Animation and Advanced Design. We also offer a number of Extended Day classes where students design and create projects tailored to their age and interest levels.
