A Science Classroom for the 21st Century

Tim Magner, executive director of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21), was recently found sharing his vision for a 21st century science classroom with reporters from CNN. Citing the Community Science Workship Network, Magner sees teachers infusing their students with an interest in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through an interactive and hands-on classroom. In the network model, “students are free to explore and experiment with a wide range of materials — discovering not just science facts, but science joy.”

If educators are to achieve this goal, the classroom furniture they acquire must be innovative and inviting. One of the most intimidating features of the science lab is the cold and chilling nature of its environment. And while schools can always invest in cost-effective options like the traditional lab stool without backrests, Virco has introduced a more creative option.

Consider the Virco 9260GCLS Lab Stool, a 9000 Class Series with casters, a gas cylinder adjustable seat with heights ranging from 19″ to 26.5″, and colors that lighten up the room. Another option is the Virco ZLAB Zuma Lab Stool from the Virco Zuma Series with a 19.5″ to 27″ adjustable gas cylinder as well as a supportive foot ring.
