Spatial intelligence is the ability to think in three dimensions. Utilizing engineering methodology and industry standards, students can improve spatial visualization and critical thinking skills by developing a scientific and engineering mindset with active hands-on experiences.
Visual-spatial skills are of great importance for success insolving many tasks in everyday life. For instance, using amap to guide you through an unfamiliar city, merging intohigh-speed traffic, and orienting yourself in yourenvironment (as when you are learning your way around anew school building) are all activities that involve spatialability.
Spatial ability is the capacity to understand and rememberthe spatial relations among objects. This ability can beviewed as a unique type of intelligence distinguishablefrom other forms of intelligence, such as verbal ability,reasoning ability, and memory skills.
It is important to note that the skills that make up spatialability are the results of long learning and trainingprocesses (beyond developmental gains and other factors).The level of spatial performance someone is capable ofmay change over time.
