I would like to start a science/robotics lab in our district, that might look something like the following... 10000-15000 square feet, with a few classrooms. The balance of the space would be for experiements, work areas, and displays. The lab would be a shared use space between the school, and the community. I believe we could utilize the several retired engineers/machinists/etc in our area in helping our kids figure out project challenges and in also providing informal science and engineering education after hours. The lab would be used for instruction of high school students, who in turn would provide workshops on occassion for elementary and middle school students...kind of a "working" science museum. Has anyone seen something like this done in K12? If so, please let me know of a model I might work from. Also, feedback on design, purpose, etc. would be great. Thanks! Brian
