Innovation & Technology

Three students with projectsWelcome to the MES Innovation Lab. Mrs. Tamara Letter, our Instructional Technology Resource Teacher (ITRT), works directly with teachers and students to empower the five C’s with technology integration: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and community service. Throughout the year, students will engage in hands-on activities and projects that reinforce our school’s mission to learn, teach, and succeed together. Our GT teacher, Mrs. Ambrose, also works directly with students to guide them with innovative instruction.

Innovation Lab

Our innovation lab is a unique learning space with the utmost flexibility in design setup and scheduling. Teachers reserve time in the innovation lab on a first-come, first-served basis. This space includes our Tiny Tech Cafe for small group collaboration, a portable Lego wall (with student Lego kits), flexible seating options, a recording studio, a green screen wall, and a Makerspace area complete with labeled material tubs. 

We have a multitude of technology options available for use, including 25 laptops, 20 iPads, Snap Circuit Kits, and 3D Doodler Pens. We also provide a host of robots for small group learning to include BeeBots, Ozobots, Mini Spheros, Wonder Dash and Dot, and Osmos. There’s always something new to learn in the innovation lab!

If you can dream it, we will find a way to do it!
