The maker movement is a global community of innovators, tinkerers, designers, and do-it-yourselfers. Likewise, design thinking is a revolution in education where students collaborate to find solutions to everyday challenges. Everyone’s opinion is valued in the design thinking process. The Sieboldt iLab is modeled after both of these concepts and encourages students to experiment, collaborate, and create using items such as rolling whiteboards, 3-D printers, laser cutters, woodworking tools and much more. The iLab at Day School will be used by students of all ages to sharpen the skills they need for success beyond the classroom.
The Sieboldt Innovation Lab was made possible through the generosity of Dr. Lori Sieboldt, a Day School parent. The iLab will be dedicated to Dr. Sieboldt’s children, Max (Class of 2018) and Abigail Lowery (Class of 2021), and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Sieboldt.
