This just in: the IKS Highlander was recently featured in an article in the Tribune-Review.
The simulator classroom was showcased to parents and the community recently during a Remake Learning event at Harrison Middle School.
Here’s a snippet from the article:
When Angela Jesionowski arrived home from school, she never wanted to talk about her day.
Then came eighth grade and the opening of the IKS Highlander life-size, video-game-style classroom at J.E. Harrison Middle School — a fun place to learn for Jesionowski, where she made friends, collaborated with peers and did something she was interested in.
Now, Jesionowski can’t stop talking about school, according to her mother, Tina, of Baldwin Borough.
“She tells her 11-year-old sister, Sarah, all about it and now she can’t wait to get here,” Tina Jesionowski said. “Leaving Harrison next year, her only regret is that she doesn’t get to use this anymore.”
The doors of the IKS Highlander opened one year ago and the room, along with a partnering Mission Ops lab, were incorporated into classroom learning for all 947 Harrison students in 2015-16.
