01 Project Overview

Shepard Middle School’s transformed science labs provide students with 16 cutting-edge environments for experimentation, small group work, traditional study and outdoor exploration.

When the State of Illinois Board of Education adopted Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Deerfield 109 took proactive steps to support new ways of teaching and learning for their students. Fanning Howey designed the renovation of four traditional science labs to embrace these forward-thinking concepts in every possible way.
