Creativity & Innovation Centre
"The pronounced self-confidence that the children are developing at BIS is what impresses me most. The school’s personalized approach to each child in the classroom, combined with the genuine attention paid to each one as an individual with a unique character, is preparing the children to go into the world self-confidently."
Wolfgang Clement, Former Federal Minister of Economy
BIS is looking for financial support for this monumental opportunity to give creativity and innovation a home. Imagine a school where the exploration of the sciences, the development of logical thinking through mathematics, the creativity of the arts, and the prototyping and testing of designs are under one roof - in Haimhausen.
What is the Creativity & Innovation Centre (CIC)?
The new heart of the Haimhausen Campus will offer modern, innovative and interdisciplinary learning conditions on three floors and approx. 8,300 square meters to around 750 students and thus represent a benchmark for education in Bavaria.
The "School of the Future" is home to open-flexible educational islands, laboratories, maker spaces, EdTech departments, studios, stages, auditoriums etc. under the motto "STEAM" (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths). As a multifunctional space, the CIC should also open up to the entire region in a spirit of partnership. The construction costs are estimated at around 25 - 30 million euros.
The new CIC will take the place of the old sports hall and replace the remaining pavilions on the Haimhausen Campus. As a new point of identification, tradition and future will be combined. Last but not least, the CIC is a milestone in the further development of the school and in ensuring top quality and state-of-the-art education. The plans for the centre are complete with the target of having the building completed in 2.5 years after we break ground.
The CIC will be a STEAM building.
STEAM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths and is used to describe an educational approach to learning that incorporates these academic disciplines as an access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
