In 2013 St. Martin's Episcopal school opened The Idea Lab. As the first of its kind in the region, The Idea Lab for innovation + design wasvsimultaneously a studio, a classroom, and a community workspace.
It wasva place where people and ideas are brought together in the spirit of connecting, learning, creating, and solving real world problems. Staff members worked alongside faculty and students to develop projects that built on the concepts and content learned in the classroom. 3-D printers, modeling software, and video and audio equipment enabled and supported rapid prototyping of ideas, field research and multimedia presentations.
Over time the program outgrew the space.
