A muted yellow wall accents the end of the lab, and green adjustable lab stools add color in the overall neutral interior. Retractable outlets hang from the ceiling over the 30-inch movable wooden tables to provide a fully functional and flexible setting for experiments involving power. The 36-inch fixed lab tables are designed with central sinks for easy access from seats along the perimeter.
Shelving, storage spaces, and additional countertop space line the outskirts of the lab. A window strategically placed between the corridor and lab provides students working in the extended learning area in the hallway a visual connection to work occurring in the STEM lab.
