Innovative Classroom & Science Lab Tables
How To Foster STEM Learning
STEM learning is designed to push students outside the idealistic education box of sitting still for hours and absorbing information from the teacher who stands at the front of the classroom.
The goal of engaged learning is as innovative as today’s classroom computer tables: push the students to think, inquire, ask questions, and explore in teams.
The STEM initiative is more than a trend. It’s a learning launch pad that’s fostered through flexible seating and collaborative classroom tables that ignites:
- Critical thinking
- Decision making
- Effective teamwork
- Problem solving
In order for education’s focus on STEM learning to take hold, students must be provided with the best learning environment possible.
Best Science Tables For Classrooms
Students will achieve and surpass education goals when they are safe, comfortable, and encouraged to collaborate with classmates. Science tables from SmithSystem, Hann, and National Public Seating are designed to tap into a student’s ability to achieve greatness in the classroom. Many of the tables feature:
- Trespa® TopLab PLUS® material work surface safe for chemical spills
- Locking casters for easy mobility to create a collaborative classroom
- Variety of heights for comfortable sitting for any age group
- Variety of colors to integrate into your school’s environment
Teaching Today’s Technology
Implementing technology into today’s classrooms has never been more important. The United States Department of Labor predicts the employment of computer and information technology occupations will grow 13 percent by 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Jobs created in these fields will focus on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, and information security. Knowing where the economy is headed plays a vital role in the design of classrooms and workspaces.
Comfortable, easy-to-use classroom computer tables are essential for active learning. Sit Stand Lectern tables are one way to encourage learning while still offering a custom environment for each student or employee. Standing workstations allow classroom computer tables to be adjusted from 30 to 45 inches with the press of a lever. The casters on the base of the table make it easy for collaborative, engaged learning and the storage basket keeps the workspace clear of clutter and distractions.
Connectivity is key for today’s students. Optimized STEM classrooms empower students to improve critical thinking and decision-making skills with access to technology that offers endless resources. Science and computer labs should not only carry today’s students into the next generation, they should inspire students to lead the way.
