ICAT Playdate — Steelcase
November 2 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am UTC-5
The educational arm of Steelcase, a company that produces office furniture and architectural and technology products, has awarded one of its Active Learning Center grants to a team led by Tim Baird. The grant will fund efforts to transform an existing Virginia Tech classroom into a living laboratory to support learning strategies that promote engagement, creativity, and collaboration, while helping researchers better understand patterns of active behavior. Baird’s work that resulted in the grant began with an ICAT SEAD grant. Out of more than 1,000 proposals submitted to Steelcase, Virginia Tech was one of only 16 education institutions across the nation to receive funding.
