Use of technology in the classroom

Through a generous donation by the Weldon family, The Stony Brook School opened its Innovation Lab in March of 2015. Our Lab hosts our STEM courses, our robotics teams and our coding classes. However it is also a place where students can come and work on projects that are exciting and important to them. With state of the art 3-D Modeling Software and Printers, Coding Software and a host of other technological and engineering tools, students are free to pursue their passions and exercise their creativity. Our Lab is a hub of activity with students constantly working on exciting projects. From building drones, submersibles and robots to coding new apps, our students demonstrate their entrepreneurial and creative powers in our lab. The Innovation Lab is the first in a multiphase plan to significantly increase our abilities to provide state of the art lab space and tools for the creators of the future. We are confident that our students will develop the next killer app or important technology that will change the way we live. (We just ask that they remember us when they make it big!) An important part of our STEM curriculum at Stony Brook is to ensure that we help students build the ethical framework that will guide responsible development of technology. As BF Skinner said, "The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do." At Stony Brook we give students the philosophical infrastructure to think ethically about their choices as it relates to technological creation and innovation. 21st Century students will live in a world of possibility as it relates to technology and we want them to transcend mere profiteering and consumption on their pathway to be responsible creators and users.

Learning Support

Learning Support is offered to students with documented disabilities that impact learning. Taking into consideration each student's unique learning profile, Learning Support offers cross-curricular support to improve the student's ability to implement strategies and manage his/her academics independently. Using course content, students develop skills in areas such as: organization, time management, study skills, test-taking skills, note-taking skills, reading comprehension, writing, and self-advocacy. Each student is assigned a learning specialist who works with him/her for the entire academic year. The learning specialist helps each student develop individualized, specific, and measurable learning goals, and a progress report is sent home quarterly. The learning specialist also meets with the student's teachers to collaborate on best practices for student success and to provide the student with appropriate support and accommodation. Contact the Director of Learning Services for pricing.
