STE(A)M FACTORY

DELANO ACADEMY IS FUTURE PROOF

In a complex global economy, students need to acquire critical 21st-century competencies. The MakerSpace is our platform that facilitates learning of these essential skills. Delano Academy's STE(A)M factory is an incubator and accelerator for students to engage in iterative, critical thinking. Students learn that with complex problems and set-backs, they can reflect, problem solve, pivot and persevere.

ACADEMY NAME ORIGIN

The origin of the school name Delano has English, Gaelic, Celtic, Jewish, French and Italian origin. Its' meaning is diverse but has been associated with the Alder Tree Grove. "The Alder Tree Grove reminds us of the need to blend strength and courage with generosity of spirit and compassion. There is a time to challenge things and a time to hold our peace.  The alder teaches us this discrimination and the need to see beneath the surface of things."

-The Wisdom of Trees, Jane Gifford.
