St. Margaret’s ICE Lab has introduced students to a dynamic environment with state-of-the-art technologies and resources to support a STEM curriculum focused on robotics that nurtures engagement in STEM learning and interest in computer engineering, programming and invention.
Students are equipped with endless possibilities for creative, cross-curricular projects and work, including the ability to design and develop interdisciplinary projects using an abundance of technology resources: design software, customizable workstations, PC and Mac platforms and iPads. Through collaborative planning, instruction and implementation, students are learning to solve physical challenges with mathematic concepts, programming skills and machines.
The ICE Maker Studio is an extension of the ICE Lab. It is a space for students to create prototypes and engage in tinkering and exploring activities using supplies and tools, including 3D printers, sewing machines, craft supplies, Little Bits, Arduinos, Raspberry Pi and other additive fabrication tools.
