School Activity Tables to Encourage Educational Exploration
Rely on school activity tables to support everything from basic crafting lessons to involved science experiments. Sturdy tables from DWI and SHAIN are designed for specific uses, so you know that every student in your class has a suitable surface for practicing what you're teaching. Designed with the needs of students in mind, our tables provide plenty of room underneath for task chairs, stools or stretched-out legs, and tables with spacious surfaces make it simple to keep an open instruction book or school-issued tablet accessible during class. Arrange compact tables along a wall to set up stations for independent student work, assign lab partners and set pairs of students at each table to teach collaboration, or teach group lessons around a larger table.
Set Up a Science Station
Modern science classes delve into more than just dissections and chalkboard lectures, so outfit your classroom with science tables that can withstand even the most unexpected experimental results. Chemical-resistant surfaces make it easy to clean up accidental spills and splashes, so each new class gets to work on a table that's as pristine as it was for the first period of the day. Convenient cubbies in the side of a science table help students keep lab notebooks, specialized tools or reference materials close by without exposing them to flames or chemicals. When your students are ready to show off the hard work they've been doing all semester, sturdy science tables give you plenty of room to display science fair projects and posters for visitors to examine.
Encourage Students' Artistic Endeavors
Whether your students are reworking blueprints to determine the correct ratios for bathroom fixtures or converting a series of gesture drawings into hand-drawn animation panels, a reliable art table with a smooth, unblemished surface can make the difference between acing the assignment and struggling with keeping lines straight on the page. Tables with adjustable glides work even on sloped or rough floors, and adjustable tabletop heights let you accommodate everyone in the class, including seated children, standing adults and students in wheelchairs.
Pass on Practical Skills
While STEM courses get a lot of the glory, there's also a strong demand for practical skills such as carpentry and metalwork. If your classroom concentrates on imparting real-world knowledge with a strong dose of hands-on experience, you need a durable workbench designed to take a beating. Large wooden student workbenches provide space for multiple students to gather around and watch while you show how to perform specific techniques, and tables with attached vises allow each member of the class to work independently while you watch over the whole room. Keep equipment and tools on an integrated shelf underneath the work surface so students can grab their materials and start working as soon as class begins.
