Our facilities encourage inquiry-based, student-led, enthusiastic learning. Innovative classroom and curriculum design are also at the heart of MIS’ strategic plan.
In order to further expand opportunities for students to engage in real-world skills, like prototyping, coding and computing, exploring materials and tools, and creating sophisticated multimedia productions, we have built ‘makers’ spaces’.
In the Junior School we have a designated room as well as ‘makers’ carts’ that enable teachers to bring advanced tools and materials to their students in their classrooms. For Middle and Senior School students we have opened a 500 sqm ‘Makers’ Laboratory’ with specialised studios for electronics, for materials science, for bicycle and small appliance repair, for textiles and fashion, and for audio and video production.
Both new ‘makers’ spaces’ have been made possible through generous financial and in–kind donations. Yet more opportunities for students can be made possible with further donations towards our new ‘making’ curriculum and facilities.
