New Design Lab – Work in Progress…

Parents, teachers, and students came together on the last Friday of the holiday break to apply some elbow grease to our upcoming Design Lab. These volunteers painted, sawed, hung, and assembled throughout the morning, making strides in creating our dream lab. Check out the hard work of these volunteers. Other work days are needed–stay tuned for your opportunity to help our magnet build this amazing makers’ space.

Film and Media Lab

Roar01FAM03

Before

Over the summer, a former classroom used for storage and copy machines was set aside to be revitalized and used as a creative space and interactive Film Lab at Thomas Starr King Middle School this year. One of our very own FAM parents Rani Ben-Ezra and his company, Basix Designs Remodeling, donated paint and time to breathe new life into the classroom with a beautiful coat of Beacon Blue.

The Film Lab will contain 10 editing bays, each with iMac computers donated from Nickelodeon, stop-motion animation hardware, microphones, and advanced editing software. The Film Lab will also have 10 brand new Canon Vixia cameras, a green screen, and screening wall. Announcements will be made when the Film Lab is fully operational and include a community open house. Stay tuned and be ready for innovative student projects this school year.  Again, thank you Basix Designs Remodeling and Nickelodeon for help making this possible.
