Building Skills Outside the Classroom With New Ways of Learning Building Skills Outside the Classroom With New Ways of Learning
What differentiates the Mayfield Innovation Center from traditional classrooms is evident not just in the virtual reality technology, the 3-D printers or the open architecture that make the two-floor, 30,000-square-foot building seem less of a secondary school than a Google satellite office.
