Lab is composed by 2 interconnecting rooms
- One room is fitted with computers and an interactive display. Computers are separated but separation panels can be easily removed so as to allow pair or group work.
- The other room has the different learning zones (Interact, Exchange, Investigate, Create, Present and Develop). It consists of individual chairs with side table and an interactive display, 4 tables for group work, the video/photo production area, the robotics area. There is also an electronic microscope and 10 tablet computers.
The target audience of both rooms ranges from primary school pupils to upper secondary. Programming and robotics have been mainly directed to primary school pupils, whereas the remaining grades are usually involved in collaborative and presentation work, student centered pedagogical approaches like flipped classroom, research and project based learning. The room is also fitted with a high speed internet connection.
There are no commercial partners involved. The room was created using EU funds from the municipality.
