Ed White Elementary School, originally built in 1965, will soon have a very different look — more windows; a sleek design with more curves; and a science, technology, engineering and mathematics wing that takes advantage of the environment around it.

"Once complete, the school will feature a lab and maker-space areas — dedicated spots where students can explore freely, collaborate and work on creative projects outside the constraints of a conventional classroom setting"

This is great. I see too many engineering graduates who don't know how to build things, how to think independently, or how to troubleshoot a problem. A lot of "hands on" class work has been replaced with more and more book work - engineers graduate with no idea about the practical side of the craft.

Worth mentioning is the legacy of Astronaut Ed White. Ed White was the first American to walk in space and died in FL during prelaunch testing for an Apollo mission.
