The Mission Ops Lab enhances the missions in the simulator to a full-scale experience that extends and enriches content curriculum using a real-world focus, career connections, unifying themes, standards, and foundational skills for middle school students.
This space empowers middle-school aged students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic learners, and integrates the curriculum to include the full range of literacy skills (information, media, visual, digital, and technological literacy) necessary to meet content standards and to encourage lifelong learning. Our teachers have become facilitators as our students take charge of their own learning. The lab is an open-ended toolbox for creative instruction. It encompasses inquiry-based and project-based learning skills that our students will need to thrive in college and the real world.
