State-of-the-art STEM space gives Paradise Valley a fresh start.
Transitioning Paradise Valley Elementary to a STEM academy required a cutting-edge facility designed to support the school’s new engineering focus. Two GEN7 buildings form a classroom hub, giving the school’s K-6 students a healthy, interactive environment with the IT infrastructure to facilitate information sharing for both project-based STEM programming and general learning. The flexible floorplan is open and sunny, with high ceilings and large windows looking out to a grassy commons. Lab space provides a safe setting for design and science, with durable surfaces and an enhanced air filtration system to ensure superior air quality. Custom ceramic tilework and sky blue doors upgrade the exterior, giving the high-tech campus a new identity.
- Open classrooms accommodate both group and individual project work
- Large low-E windows and Solatubes reduce the need for electric lights
- Extra storage provides space for Chromebooks, projects and supplies
