The Digital Arts Express
What is The DAExpress?
The DAExpress was created to provide the most cutting-edge technology in a state of the art learning environment. Able to accommodate up to 10 students at once, we offer nearly every class that we teach in our Scarsdale facility, anywhere in Westchester, Southern Connecticut and Rockland. Even birthday parties! The DAExpress is equipped with 10 Macbook Pros, and a Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printer when available.
We have taken all measures to ensure the safety of each and every person that sets foot in The Digital Arts Express. While a program is in session, the vehicle will be parked with the emergency brake applied and wheels will be secured with industrial grade chocks.
The DAExpress has an advanced ventilation system and is equipped with BlueTEC technology to ensure that fresh air is continually circulated at a comfortable temperature. BlueTEC is the world’s most advanced, ultra-low emissions engine. Using a solution called AdBlue, the system converts typical exhaust fumes into nitrogen and oxygen, which is naturally in the air we breath. ADAC, Germany’s largest automobile association, rates BlueTEC as #1 in CO2 emissions. BlueTEC is the greenest & cleanest diesel technology in the world.
The DAExpress is also equipped with 2 first aid kits and at least one DAE staff member that is trained in first aid will be present at all times.
At the JCC, we love the DAE Mobile Computer Lab! It enables us to offer the DAE’s exciting classes and wonderful teachers when our after school program is busting at the seams and we are already strapped for space in our building. The Lab is comfortable, is full of sleek, state of the art equipment, and sparks the imagination. As an environmentally responsible organization, we were concerned about having a bus idling in the parking lot for hours at a time, but the lab’s efficient and green design allows it to run on very little fuel with almost no emissions. It doesn’t smell, and doesn’t give off heat or clouds of exhaust. It is a treat to see it parked at the J each week.Lisa Feinman, LMSW
