A technology enabled active learning lab will soon be built at Wheeling Central Catholic High School.

The school plans to build the TEAL lab in the old library beginning this June.

Principal Rebecca Sancomb said the lab will model a lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and offer resources for students to prepare them for college.

"This will be a space where we provide the technology that they're going to see in their future," said Sancomb.

Wilma Beaver, a science teacher at CCHS, said students and teachers will be even more hands-on than before.

"I will be able to bring up, like, the three-dimensional image of the skeleton when we are working on that," said Beaver."I can zoom in on an area I want to stress; on their own individual TV screens they'll be able to see what I'm pointing out."

The books will be moved, the room completely remodeled and the space made into a high-tech lab.

Maria Miller, a junior at CCHS, said it's necessary and exciting.

"Technology is such an important part of college and the job you have after college," said Miller. "You have to be able to use it."

The lab will be ready for the 2014-2015 school year. The money for the project was provided partly by a grant from the J.B. Chamber Foundation.
