The Steelcase Active Learning Classroom is going to start an entire movement of new makers and creators in our community,” says Boyce Middle School STEAM teacher Matt Henderson.

After reimagining the classroom, 12 educational institutions find that their Active Learning Centers result in enhanced collaboration and supported instructor-led changes in pedagogy among other positive outcomes.
