iDEAS Lab Features


The iDEAS Lab is home to an amazing array of accessible technology. In addition to our large conference room style tables, the lap hosts an Apple Mac Book Cart with 24 laptops, 5 27" iMac Computers, a SMART Board, a mobile Green Screen (complete with soft light boxes), and a 100 square foot dry erase wall (great for brainstorming and ideating!) So far this year, we've hosted numerous classroom and student project groups (see below for some examples), the schools Underwater Robotics Club meetings, and a variety of TAP Tuesday presentations for staff and teachers!
