Getting To Know The ARS Design Lab! Our design lab is a class based on technology and innovation. The main focus of this class is to help the community that surrounds us as well as innovating any object that serves for the technological purpose. This class also focuses on building and innovating things that already exist. The point of this class is to teach us the importance of working with limited materials and also, being capable of creating a change in the way an object functions for the greater good to help out our community.
This year in our design lab we are required to do lessons called modules. These “modules” are miniature lessons that help us increase knowledge while helping out the community. These modules have everything that you need to know about each of the subjects required. Down below will be a picture of a few lessons we focus on which are Math, Engineering, Media Technology, and Bio-medical Science.
For this class we have a room called the makerspace. This room is brand new and we are the first class to ever use it. Whoo! Whoo! 2019! We use this room to build and work on a variety of different projects. The focus of this classroom is to provide space for us to be able to create anything and everything. Are you interested in our makerspace? Well then, take a look at a few of our pictures.
