Main Street Innovation Hub Now Set to Open in February

The opening of Northwood’s new downtown Lake Placid location, the Innovation Hub at Northwood School, is now set to open after Winter Break. The new academic center, originally scheduled to open in the fall (and then after Christmas break), has had its grand opening date changed due to normal construction delays. As the construction team adds final touches to the new facility, all classes will remain at Northwood’s main campus until classes resume after break on February 24.

As an extension to the main campus, the Innovation Hub will expand Northwood’s interdisciplinary approach to learning to downtown Lake Placid and beyond. The Innovation Hub will host a variety of programs to foster collaboration within the Northwood community. Student Exchange will encourage Northwood students to share their talents in events including but not limited to poetry slams, open mic nights, and music concerts. Through Alumni Exchange, the alumni will also have chances to further connect with their alma mater. Head of School, Mr. Michael Maher, and the Alumni Council will regularly present virtual town-hall-style conferences to discuss the visions of Northwood.

The Innovation Hub will be an opportunity to open Northwood’s doors to the local community as well. Community Exchange events, such as lecture series, mentorship meetings, and educational workshops, will promote both the student body and the regional community members to share their knowledge and experiences. Hub Talks is another program to look forward to. These events will host top-level speakers and will be recorded for those who cannot attend. Information on summer camps and auxiliary programs will follow.

A Community Open House at the Innovation Hub is planned for Monday, February 24 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Members of the Northwood and Lake Placid communities are welcome to stop by and explore the new space.
