Baden Academy’s Media Lab, founded and run by a local organization called Grow a Generation, offers a truly unique environment for our students. Classroom teachers work directly with the Media Lab’s director to provide educational opportunities for their students, and many of our teachers take on specific projects with the Media Lab as part of their own professional development.
The Media Lab also provides an in-school fellowship program that gives students the chance to work collaboratively with experts and mentors from around the world, as well as an array of after-school clubs and activities, many of which are run by the students themselves. Both the fellowships and after-school activities offer opportunities for field trips, competitions, book signings, and other events that provide real-world, interactive experiences for our eager participants.
Our Media Lab has supported students’ interests in everything from space exploration and environmental sustainability, to animal protection, human rights, global issues, and technology. This program encourages and empowers our students and supports them as they develop their capacity for critical thinking, collaboration, resilience, and self-awareness.
