New York Chapter

Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Housing untraditional, high-tech classrooms and laboratories designed to simulate real-world work environments, the complex exists through a partnership between Mohonasen Central School District, Schenectady County Community College, and Capital Region Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES).


To align with the region's need to build a skilled workforce pipeline for local industries, the facility supports unique programs and offers an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to learning that is integral to STEAM education for traditional students and adult learners. Spaces include a large group instruction room for traditional presentations/lectures; an electrical lab for alternative energy and photovoltaic systems; an advanced machining/manufacturing lab; a nanotechnology lab; a health professions lab; a black box theatre/graphic arts lab; a welding lab; and a woodshop classroom, among other classrooms and meeting space.


With the ability to accommodate more than 400 students each day, the CAT has the potential to truly change the career trajectory of many local high school, college, and adult learners. By molding exactly what regional manufacturing businesses are looking for, students will leave this facility with what it takes to succeed in the Capital Region and beyond.
