Lead by Example: An Exploration of STEM Schools
More InformationShow full item record
This thesis is an exploration into the fundamental question: can educational architecture be specifically designed to optimize one's ability to attain certain knowledge? The title is Lead by Example: An Exploration of STEM Schools, and I will conduct this investigation through an 80,000 square foot STEM School in Fargo, North Dakota. The theoretical premise that drives this project is: in order for specific knowledge to be transferred to a seeker of knowledge, in the best possible fashion, educational architecture must be carefully designed and crafted to create the optimal environment for the event to take place. The reason behind this investigation is because in today's society, the quality of attention that is required when designing educational environment is absent. This must be addressed. Finely crafted educational environments will beget the enrichment of knowledge into one's life, inspiration and innovations are soon to follow, paving the way for an enhanced society and a better tomorrow.
