Look What We Have Accomplished

FOCUS has undergone some wonderful changes with the grant awarded from the Battle of the Brain!  We were able to add 25 MacBooks, 4 IMacs, 2 Centique tablets, 4 drones, 8 Ozobot robots, 8 TV monitors, 7 Apple TVs, and new furniture for the Commons and Lab areas.  We are so very thankful to the district for their support for the FOCUS Program through the renovation process!
The students working with Burns & McDonnell and Science City have almost completed their project.  This has been an amazing journey!!
On November 8th, we toured the gutted exhibit space and were able to see the space empty, discuss the plans, and envision the space as it transforms into what was once named The Big Brain Theory.  It was exciting to see how our idea has changed and developed into...well, we can’t share what...but, we can share that using our brains in this collaborative process was amazing!
On January 10th, we went to 3 Axis and tested several of the activities for the exhibit. just 2 months everything becomes real!
On February 7th, we will experience another Hard Hat Tour as we visit the exhibit for the last time before the Grand Opening…
On MARCH 7th, 2019 we will be there for the GRAND OPENING.  We are so very excited and yet sad that this experience is coming to a close.  Thank you Burns & McDonnell and Science City!!!!!!
