STEM Hallway
Break-Out Area

Cedar Park has a newly built STEM break-out space located in our STEM hall. This collaborative area has movable furniture to easily create big to small groups of student interaction. This space has LED panel with an Apple TV for kids and staff to mirror to so they can share and present information to the STEM hall HDTV. The STEM break-out area is also were we teach with our Augmented Reality (AR) Sandbox to teach the fundamentals of geography, landforms and the water cycle.

Outdoor Classrooms

Cedar Park takes learning outside during all seasons so our students can receive authentic learning experiences from: our school pond, our school forest and gardens, tapping maple tress to make our own syrup, having robotics class outside, Geocaching with our GPSs, observing and feeling life science in it's own natural state.
