Curiosity Center

Welcome to the Meadowlark Curiosity Center

This interactive space functions as the learning hub and heart of the school that reaches beyond its four walls to include online and blended resources. The Curiosity Center contains books and resources, and serves as a “curiosity commons.” This unique areas provides a place for students to learn, collaborate, think, create, read, investigate, tinker, and much more. This space enhances personalized learning for each member of our community.

Part of our mission is to create lifelong learners, and this includes lifelong readers—which is why reading is still a focus for our libraries. The goal with the space is to make it flexible for the new learning landscape. Information and technology should be ubiquitous so students have access to the tools needed to realize the innovation principles of connections with experts, inquiry based learning and student publishing using digital tools. In addition, the library should always be within “reach.” Our 1: Web program extends the library experience for students to the rest of the school and at home.
