THE INTERACTIVE SCIENCE FORUM - A NEW WAVE FOR EDUCATION:
Fusing together the creative processes of science and art, the 2200 square foot Interactive Science Forum at Latin School of Chicago provides students hands-on access to scientific concepts and new technologies, and perspectives into the beauty and complexity of our natural world. Learning spills out from laboratories into the Forum’s public space, filled with student-centered art, science, and technology project-based exhibits.

Students submerge into the waves, moving down and around to their next class. Representing the next wave for science education, the Interactive Forum immerses high school students of The Latin School in an opportunity and technology rich center, synthesizing analytical and aesthetic investigation and learning.

This place makes me want to learn.
~ Latin High School Student

Latin School is truly an innovative, 21st century educational space.
~ Carolyn Armenta Davis Hon AIA
