NORTHBROOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT 27: New Roofing, STEAM Lab Planned for Wood Oaks
Northbrook Elementary School District 27 recently issued the following announcement.
The Board of Education this week received a report on the District’s Master Facility Plan, which includes work to be completed over the summer of 2019 at Wood Oaks.
Representatives from the architectural firm of Arcon Associates, Inc. shared with the Board plans for roof replacement work and construction of the new Wood Oaks STEAM/Applied Technology Lab.
The STEAM/Applied Technology Lab will house the school’s Applied Technology program, STEAM electives, and the Broadcast studio. The lab will include flexible seating for students, ample counter space for 3D printers, a “brainstorming hub,” equipment storage, projection systems, and robotics game tables.
The space was formerly a classroom and the home economics room.
The roofing and STEAM/Applied Technology Lab projects are estimated to cost $1.6 million.
