The Foundry

The Foundry is the school's purpose-built makerspace - a learning environment designed to encourage students to build, experiment and prototype inventions as they engage deeply in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

Projects are topic-based and wide-ranging following a rigorous, interdisciplinary steam curriculum. 

Topics covered in the past include weather, criminal science investigation, industrial revolution, environment, social issues, economics, architectural, and energy. 

Activities might include electronics, robotics, coding, 3D printing, Lego-building, laser-cutting, woodworking, textiles, prototyping, digital fabrication and cardboard construction.
