Projects | Illinois Math and Science Academy Renovation
The mission of the Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA) it to reignite and nurture creative, ethical, scientific minds that advance the human condition, through a system distinguished by profound questions, collaborative relationships, personalized experiential learning, global networking, generative use of technology and pioneering outreach; a mission possible only if its laboratories and classrooms match its reputation as one of the world’s leading teaching and learning laboratories for imagination and inquiry. However, the B-Wing Laboratories and classrooms are untouched since 1978.
Luckily, the contractor’s bids just came through to Bailey Edward to move the renovation process forward after having been placed on hold. The B-Wing of the school will be regenerated into contemporary teaching and research spaces. Construction will begin at the end of the year and finish in June, just in time for IMSA to host the International Science Fair in July, 2018. The International Science Fair began in 2005 and IMSA will host its United States debut where representatives from 35 countries are expected to attend.
