Join us for a Building Tour at Fisher Middle School!
Thursday, June 19 @ 11:30am-1:00pm
Dr. Phinnize J. Fisher Middle School (700 Millennium Blvd., Greenville SC 29607)
This unique teaching environment responds to principles of an interdisciplinary, project and inquiry based education curriculum known as STEAM, reflecting the focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. The new school focuses heavily on collaborative spaces that will support educational programs developed by local corporate engineering and technology leaders designed to enhance the Student’s connection to real-world applications outside academia and encourage both community investment and involvement in school programs.
The new 179,000 SF, three-story design will serve 1,000 students and has been designed to achieve Green Globes certification. Project architect, Chris Swale at McMillan Pazdan Smith, will lead the building tour and discuss the differences in Green Globes certification verses LEED certification. Through the use of sophisticated technological building applications and systems, the building will serve as a teaching tool with indoor and outdoor learning spaces that demonstrate specific applications of math, science and engineering.
Don’t forget your hard hat! Boxed lunch with be served in the trailer after the tour.
