“As multimedia becomes a part of our life and our education, the new lab will have a positive influence and make our students innovators.”
—Mohamed A. Daoud, Multimedia teacher
Ramallah – The Upper School’s Science Building has seen the creation of a new multimedia lab and the refurbishment of its biology, chemistry, and physics labs thanks to support from USAID/ASHA grants. The building is now home to the aforementioned labs, as well as a technology lab, a computer lab, arts room and teaching rooms.
The new multimedia lab features iOS and iMAC computers and software. Those will be used for teaching graphic design, animation and film making for Middle School students. The studio also includes a sound room which will be used for teaching sound editing and recording, as well as publishing RFS’s first online radio.
Multimedia teacher Mohamed Daoud speaks highly of the evolving impact of technology in education. He says that due to multimedia becoming a part of our life and our education, “this lab will have a positive influence and make our students innovators.”
The refurbishment of the science labs serves to provide students with space, equipment, and an environment to advance their scientific experimentation and exploration process. The labs’ design and surfaces are all built purposefully and are among the first in Palestine to fully accommodate an advanced science laboratories experience for school students.
Some of the labs will be used for teaching and conducting subject-related experiments, and others like the chemistry lab will be used mostly by senior students who will be conducting research using state of the art chemistry equipment which the labs are currently being equipped with.
