What is an Innovation Lab?
An Innovation Lab is a fully-equipped studio where students can engage in hands-on learning, creative play, fun science projects and tinkering. The idea behind such an environment is to facilitate learning through self discovery and collaboration with other children and trained mentors. The lab serves as a prepared environment with lots of stimulating materials like Lego robotics, science kits, 3D printer, Electronic hardware, hand & power tools, etc. Students take part in fun activities related to STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and art to develop the ability to think in new ways and problem solve in our changing environment.
