The Technology, Integration, Learning, Environment (TILE) Lab features three new high-tech classrooms: Coding/Robotics Center, Creative/Design Center, and the Maker Space. These centers utilize different types of creativity and technology.
The Coding/Robotics Center features PC laptop computers for Computer Science classes and applications.
The Creative/Design Center features 25 iMac workstations for Graphic Design and Photography.
The Maker Space is the center hub of the TILE Lab and it features seven 3D printers, a high-speed dual laser cutter, a virtual reality (VR) creation area, and a robotics competition field. The Maker Space is utilized by those students who create work in the other two centers, and also provides space for these new technologies to be utilized by all Maranatha courses across all disciplines.
TILE Lab Goals:
The goal of the TILE Lab is to use the creations made (i.e. models, apps, robots, etc.) as a tool to enhance Maranatha students’ education and prepare them for the future. The TILE Lab focuses on the principles of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Fusing these principles together aims to help activate entrepreneurialism in our students.
