Innovation Center

We are extremely excited to offer students an updated space, the Innovation Center, to create, collaborate, learn, build, and demolish.

This improved space includes these rooms:

  • Maker Lab
  • Media Lab (This houses the 3D printer lab and Green Screen movie-making studio.)
  • Build/Demolish Lab
  • Collaboration Lab (aka "Lions Learning Lab - L3")
  • an exit door to the Outdoor Learning Center
  • Library with over 5,000 items in circulation.

What you may see happening if you came by our Innovation Center (a.k.a. the "IC"):

Students and Teachers...

  • creating circuits with LittleBits or Snap-Circuits electronics or Makey-Makey kits
  • printing items on one of our 3D printers
  • constructing items out of different materials (duct tape, cardboard, Legos, 3D pens, pipe cleaners, construction paper and more...)
  • taking apart old technology to see what's inside and sometimes re-purposing it
  • recording movies in front of a green screen with advanced movie-studio equipment or just an iPad
  • collaborating with Chromebooks and a flat screen TV
  • using an interactive 65 in. touch-screen SMART panel to work on group projects
