    What does that look like for you?
    Would you want bathrooms connected to your classroom?
    Tables or desks? More computers?
    Any special requests?

    Cool in theory, but you would have to keep the classroom frigidly cold to the point of inducing hypothermia. And if you ever looked at the thing funny, it would have a hissy fit and break, and you would need to wait for somebody to fly over from France to fix it.

    SEMS are great when you need to extend a 2 week project out into 8 months. :lol:
