I went ahead of myself today and began daydreaming about what I would propose if we were to do a make-over of our space. First, I love the rawness and flexibility of the current space. I think it speaks to the Lab's personality and/or style of approach to things. I just think we should do more about that.
In the past, last summer for sure, we had seminars discussing ideas for redesigning this space. Combine those ideas with the need to improve or somehow standardize (I can many of you disapprovingly frowning just by hearing the word “standardize”) our EdLab Tour, then we might come up with something that satisfies both. As with many great experiments, you got to try and see if it works.
- Dry-erase surface wall or table
- Gallery of project incubators
There would be project artifacts inside instead of a baby, real or not. An alternative to an infant incubator is literally, a nest. : ) Displayed contents could convey to visitors what's being incubated here. It could be a quick and impactful way of communicating what EdLab is and what we do up here.
- More home-made stickers on the floor for directions and whatever else
