Inspired Students = An Inspired Future
Imagine the Creatable. . .
Lane Tech High School is Chicago’s largest public school offering one of the most comprehensive STEM programs in the country. We are looking to take the next step in the evolution of our program to create a new state-of-the-art STEAM learning hub called the ThinkLab. Imagine an idea space located directly across from our Maker's Lab, focused on hands-on learning and collaboration.
Artificial Intelligence, Engineering,Robotics, and Computer Science classes
An Idea Incubator (entrepreneurship class)
Project-based learning lab
STEAM collaboration space
Our success as a STEAM school:
Internationally recognized robotics team
Participate in Chicago’s Array of Things AoT project
Collaboration with the Chicago Cubs in a data collection project
Partnerships with Google and Apple
Robotics set design assistance with the Goodman Theater
Project Scope - Budget: $450,000
Amount Raised to Date - $275.000
Timeline: With full funding, work will begin in June 2020
Targeted completion of September 1, 2020 for the new school year.

This will be a classroom space to promote the opportunity and structure for students to produce ideas that can be conceptualized for possible projects/products. The flow of the space will have room for whole group discussion and direct instruction, pod areas for small group work and production, and an interactive thought captivity space--where students can write on a see through board that can be used for brainstorming, product delineation, idea development etc. that can then be captured in software.
The classroom space will allow for an Artificial Intelligence class, an Incubator (entrepreneurial class) as well as a lab for project-based learning. We see this as an example of 21st century learning for students and for our teachers to be able to use technology in a way that can enhance the creative thought process.
To this end, Lane Tech is currently looking for donor funding to start the build-out of another incredibly high profile project which will involve designing a new state of the art STEAM learning hub called the "Think Lab." This classroom is directly across the hallway from our Furthermore, this is the natural next step in our evolution of the Maker's Lab concept. Our Think Lab will serve a wide variety of our students who are interested in the fields of Computer Science, Engineering, Robotics and Entrepreneurship.
