Designing Education Experiences Inspired by Children's Museums

With a new K-6 school that emulates a children’s museum, the Seneca Valley School District is exploring the possibilities of the education journey. The project unites CannonDesign with the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh to advance bold new opportunities for school design. When it opens in fall 2022, the school will introduce students, staff, and families to exciting new ideas around how corridors and walls are used, the building and surrounding natural environment can be teaching tools, adaptability allows for constant curation of physical learning spaces, and how space can take students on learning journeys. In this presentation, speakers will outline the design elements and strategic partnership behind the creation of a dynamic research-based, leading-edge children’s learning environment.
