Kids Science Labs - Pop Up Classroom
Kids Science Labs Pop Up Classroom
Kids Science Labs was asked to give their hands-on science classes at the annual multi-day camp for the families of employees of a large corporation in Indianapolis. To facilitate active participation and expand KSL’s potential for exciting programming, we created a temporary ‘pop-up’ classroom that is deployable anywhere, in any space. Similar to the other facilities we’ve designed for KSL, the classroom becomes an active participant in the interactive learning process. Double-sided modular wall panels, one side tack board and one side marker board, are staggered to support one another overhead. The offset creates an interstitial passageway that acts as a threshold between the classroom inside and the surrounding space outside, so that different activities can be taking place simultaneously. Best of all, the 30 classroom panels and gussets, constructed by a scenery builder in just three weeks, flat-pack onto two carts so they can be easily transported and stored for future use.
Area/Budget: 1,200sf / $20,000
Scope: deployable temporary classroom for offering hands-on science, problem solving, and creative design classes for kids 2-12 to explore the principles of science
