Dartmouth Middle School
San Jose, CA
State-of-the-art STEM space makes Dartmouth a cool school.
The Union School District wanted a leading-edge STEM building that could serve as both a teaching tool for DMS students and a prototype for other schools interested in developing a STEM program. AMS created an innovative, energy-efficient building that organically connects function and design through the creative use of sustainable materials and “cool” technology like movable walls, interactive whiteboards and a video green room. Free-flowing spaces are connected by sliding glass NanaWalls that transition indoor and outdoor learning areas, while providing natural light and ventilation—key to healthy learning and GEN7’s energy-saving strategies. Concrete floors are ideal for robotics and student experiments in a hands-on lab environment.
- Open flex-space reconfigures for diverse learning and club activities
- Technology-enabled infrastructure allows multi-device data sharing
- Collaborative areas encourage interactive, project-based learning
Gen7 embodies the advanced design and engineering strategies that our STEM curriculum teaches. Our students were involved from the outset, touring the AMS factory to see green design in action, then enjoying another fun learning experience when their STEM classrooms were installed on campus. Gen7 brings great value to our District—as an interactive teaching tool for our students and a progressive facility for our community.
