King's Innovation Lab provides students a place to create, discover, design, engineer, and build.
The new Innovation Lab provides Middle and Upper School students the tools, space, and guidance to inspire and nurture discovery. Through real-time critical thinking and trial-and-error activities, students learn to design solutions to real world problems. The Innovation Lab expands upon other campus hubs for discovering and creating, including the Lower School Makerspace, the Computer Science Media Center, computer labs, science labs, recording studio, scene shop, and craft room.
The Innovation Lab, which opened in Fall 2018, is flexible, with movable equipment and furniture, so students can customize their experience and challenge themselves to achieve their personal best. It is available to students to work independently and collaboratively for classwork, robotics and STEM competitions, and extra-curricular activities from any discipline.
The Innovation Lab includeS:
- 1,060 square foot space plus a new 600 square foot classroom above half the Lab
- 20 foot high ceiling for tall projects and flying machines
- Connection to adjoining classroom to allow for runway space
- High tech tools and resources, including: robotics table, 3D printers, laser cutter, soldering and electronic diagnostic tools, power tools, hand tools, computer controlled router and engraver machine, high capacity server, and digital sewing machine
Thank you to all the donors in the King Community who shared our vision and made it possible to build the $1.4MM Innovation Lab that enables students to explore any discipline and let their imagination and creativity soar!
