The mission of Laing’s Whole-School STEM Initiative is to help our students and teachers use tools of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to make learning more interesting and engaging, and therefore more effective. We know that STEM tools can be used to enhance every subject in our curriculum, including English, social studies, and fine arts. Giving our students opportunities to use these tools to solve real-world problems also helps them discover new interests and talents that might lead to careers in various STEM professions.
Located in Room 263, Laing’s FabLab is a small-scale workshop equipped with tools to make almost anything. These tools include
Ultimaker 3D Printers
Universal Laser Systems Laser Cutter and Engraver
ShopBot Computer Controlled Milling Machine
Arduino and Raspberry Pi Microcontrollers
zSpace Virtual Reality System
as well as a variety of electronic components for making things that speak, move, light up, sense, and communicate. For more information, please see these links:
