The xLab is College Prep's flexible and collaborative space for hands-on learning, innovation, and interdisciplinary exploration through design, experimentation and fabrication. The xLab’s suite of tools are available for class projects related to curriculum, as well as club projects. Students may also request time to work on their own creations.
On any given day, the xLab is bustling:
- A Chemistry class filming stop-motion animations of chemical systems using lasercut or 3D printed pieces and dry erase walls.
- English seminar students working on a creative project.
- The Innovative Tech Student Crew (ITS) collaborating with teachers on projects that benefit the school community.
- Students building drones, creating jewelry using the laser and 3D printers, or leading workshops on 3D modeling software
