Hazel Wolf K-8 E-STEM School is the 2018 A4LE Pinnacle Award Project of Distinction
The A4LE Pinnacle Award Program recognizes outstanding educational facilities in the Pacific Northwest Region that advance teaching and learning as part of a larger community experience. As a pioneer in Environmental STEM (E-STEM) education, this K-8 urban school envisions its site as a science lab with a variety of learning areas that incite genuine engagement. The landscape offers a range of experiences, each designed to support a specific curriculum. Integrating the site and building promotes a “space flow,” where a multitude of non-traditional spaces can accommodate planned or spontaneous learning opportunities. In this setting, Hazel Wolf’s
academically rigorous programs are empowering kids to become creative, critical thinkers and environmental stewards.
