Design (STEAM) Center
Adams Design (STEAM) Center
All students receive instruction for forty-five minutes to 60 minutes weekly in the Design Center. Students will create innovative projects.
Our dynamic Design Center teacher, Sean Federbusch, talks about all things S.T.E.A.M.
What is your background and how did you become the Director of our Design/STEAM Center?
“This is my 7th year teaching at the elementary level. Before teaching, I was a network administrator at a financial company in SB for 9 years. 3 years ago, Dr. Alzina asked me if was interested in helping run a "maker space", aka, Design Center, at Adams. I was! Little did I know it would translate into an opportunity to spend a year at Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy mentoring with their amazing team! While Chloe Milligan (now Pueschel) was starting our design center, I spent the year learning about project-based learning, laser cutting, and design and manufacturing process. Last year was my first year back and it was a huge success in terms of buy-in from students and developing a sense of community of "makers" at Adams.”
