Description:
The renovated and greatly expanded HCLS Savage Branch & STEM Education Center further positions HCLS as a 21st century educational institution, delivering 21st century public education for all. A launching point for the STEM career pipeline, the contemporary branch centers on science and technology, tripling classroom space for the delivery of the enhanced HCLS STEM curriculum for children and teens. Nearly doubling the size of the venue, every inch of this cutting-edge epicenter of learning advances the caliber of the curriculum HCLS delivers under its three pillars: Self-Directed Education, Research Assistance & Instruction, and Instructive & Enlightening Experiences. The branch features new and improved lighting, more than 50 public access computers, one meeting room, one conference room, three study rooms, two new children’s classrooms, improved customer seating, reading nooks for all ages, a vending cafe with seating area, and a laptop counter overlooking the renovated courtyard. Classrooms are named for historic STEM pioneers. Outside, the renovated Savage Branch features two outdoor classrooms with a casual, shaded seating area. The new courtyard includes wifi and a Storm Planter with educational elements that demonstrate bioconservation, green technologies, and Maryland’s water lifecycle.  A stepping stone pathway connects the neighborhood to the entrance of the building from Knights Bridge Road, and a footbridge connects Gorman Road to the branch. Other exterior features include a modernized parking lot and sidewalk that demonstrate the latest advancements in ecological conservation and preservation.  Infrastructure is in place for the installation of car charging station in the near future.  The HCLS Savage Branch includes dedicated space for HCLS’ HiTech initiative.
