In The Spotlight

The Battle of the Brains journey continues...


On January 23, 2018, the 4th and 5th grade Focus students began the collaborative work for their winning exhibit design, The Big Brain Theory.  The students met the design teams from Burns & McDonnell and Science City and began to discuss the timeline for making the The Big Brain Theory come to life.  The project has a one-million dollar budget, and the students were charged with thinking about the most important parts of their design and how their design will integrate with the exhibits that currently surround the build-area.  After the meeting, the students toured Burns & McDonnell and were amazed as they experienced the work environment of the 16th rated Fortune's 2017 list of Best Companies to Work For.
