FuturePLAY is providing:
Technology: Tablets, laptops, projectors and tech carts
Flexible modular furniture

Supporting STEAM Professional development opportunities for teachers
Our world is changing fast. By 2037 there will be more jobs in technology than the industry's local talent can support. Necessary skills in technology are not limited to specialized knowledge like coding. They also require fundamental disciplines like art, design, and science, as well as critical thinking, strong communication, problem-solving, teamwork, decision making, resilience, and others. We know that foundational skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Art (STEAM) will help prepare youth for any career path they choose to pursue.
