Learning happens everywhere at Beaver.
We intentionally design the entire campus as an active learning space making it easy for students to collaborate or work independently, wherever inspiration strikes them. We believe expanding students’ physical environments directly engenders more creative thinking and opportunities for collaboration.
As you walk around campus you’ll see students working everywhere you look, whether they are chatting in the hallway about a new idea, eagerly awaiting the completion of their latest job on the laser cutter, rehearsing a presentation in the courtyard, installing a recently finished piece of art in the gallery, or recording a podcast in the studio.
Notice how our classrooms are designed. The furniture is on wheels, surfaces are writeable, brainstorm boards and materials libraries are readily available, technology is seamlessly integrated. Different types of environments allow us to work more effectively. There are presentation spaces, meeting spaces, collaborative spaces, and quiet spaces.
